Spotify Free apparently provides some desktop users from malware




Spotify runs currently the hassles of some users. The reason is the delivered advertising in the free offer of music streaming service. By using the desktop client, the program will open the default browser again and loads web pages with malicious content, some of which do not even require a user action to cause harm. The user who this in the Spotify community raised the issue, explaining that he can observe this problem on three different systems that are to be “clean” all. And so, there are also users who have seen this problem with him.

Debt should be advertising in Spotify Free, which just opened this Website. The operating system appears to be matter concerned use Windows, Linux and macOS. Spotify already declared that it will take care of it, but did not confirm this redirect to malicious websites so far. So should you use Spotify and you should ridiculous browser activity notice: The uninstall the Spotify client fills this gap. How extensive or bad, this incident is a total, can not really estimate.
