This is not the first time that Spotify has fallen victim to malware attacks, that is, the free version of Spotify makes malware sneaks into our computer through the browser, whatever it is. The users themselves have been the ones who have noticed this vulnerability, the most striking thing is that they are users of the most used operating systems, in this case we are talking about Windows, Mac and Ubuntu.
Several users have reported the bug on the social network Twitter in which Spotify and the free version of the application are mentioned, In the tweet we can see how users accuse the streaming music service of malware incursing their browsers and others recommend that we uninstall the application until further notice.
The responsible for Spotify have de alt with the issue of this problem although it is unknown if there is an official statement from them. As we have said before, this is not the first time this has happened to this service since all this happened for the first time in 2011 and in years prior to the present.
If we think about it, this may not be very beneficial for Spotify since this case is not the best publicity for said service plus recent rumors that Spotify may buy the music service Soundcloud.
So from our knowledge we advise you to uninstall the app until Spotify or don't use it because you will end up with browser full of windows pointing to malware.
What did you think of this news? Are you one of those affected by using the free version of Spotify?
