This only seems to affect users with a free service Spotify, where the application for MacOS and Windows has been serving malware laden websites.

During the course of a music track streaming, users who have Spotify service Free claiming browser windows that appear questionable sites, and start executable flash and potentially infectious Javascript.

It seems that Mac users are particularly affected by the problem, forcing them to deal with pop - ups that appear every few minutes and lead to potentially malicious sites that could run Flash and Javascript applications.

Users Spotify app on iOS or Android does not seem to be affected by the problem, both for users with the free service, as for those who have a contracted plan.

Spotify already set to work on the claims, to detect the source of the problem and potential vulnerabilities of the app. If anything is certain of this, it is that emerging browser windows that display malicious sites is present in major computer platforms (Windows, Linux and MacOS).
