Spotify is serving malware-infested ads to its users

Spotify is serving malware-infested ads to its users-1-网络科技-permission,technology,reporting,streaming,running

  It seems Spotifyis in for trouble as numerous music lovers are reporting that its freemium streaming service is pushing malware-infested ads to its users.
   According to a user report on the company’s forum, running Spotify Free on the desktop periodically causes your browser to open various malicious websites without your permission.
              A new era of tech events has begun

     We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.

      So if your browser has been acting erratically while streaming music, you’re not the only one – and now you know what the issue might be.
  Angered users were quick to alert the Twitterverse about the issue.

   Had a malware on my ubuntu desktop that kept opening random ads on my browser every minute. Luckily @Spotify client was easy to uninstall.

   @SpotifyCares Yesterday the Spotify Free software started launching malware on my Mac's Safari on its own. Many have the same experience atm

   While the original report suggested the vulnerability occurred on a Windows 10 set-up, it seems the issue persists in other operating systems too – including Ubuntu and MacOS .
  Spotify has since responded to the complaints, saying it is currently looking into the affair.
   This isn’t the first time music giant has dealt with ad controversy. Back in 2011, the streaming service issued a public apology after displaying malicious ads to some of its users. The company was quick to resolve the complication though.
  We’ve contacted Spotify for further comment and will update this post accordingly if we hear back.
