Spotify has apologized for an attack that exposed users of the free version of its music streaming service in Europe to malware through tainted advertisements. The ads served content that attempted to infect users' machines with scareware. Spotify disabled third-party advertisements on Friday, March 25 after learning of the problem. The company isolated and removed the offending ad, and service was back to normal in the next few days.
