Music service Spotify accidentally displays malware-riddled ads

European music streaming service Spotify accidentally blasted its users with malware within ads.

All things considered, the safest and most ethical solution is simply not to use any software supported by adverts. Pay up for the ad-free version if possible, or try and find the same functionality elsewhere. For every Skype, for example, there's free Voice over IP software that's ad-free. And if you don't want to use a music-streaming service like Spotify then tune-into an Internet radio station that relies on traditional (and much safer!) spoken advertisements.
