Spotify encourages journalists to plug in random USB sticks

As part of a podcast promotion, Spotify sent USB sticks to journalists. But this decision has been criticized by computer security researchers.

But anyone with basic safety training under their hat – which we do here at TechCrunch – will never plug in a USB drive without taking a few precautions first.

Connecting random USB drives is a bigger problem than you might think. Elie Bursztein, a Google security researcher, discovered in his own research that about half of all people would connect to their computers on random USB drives.

I doubt anyone at Spotify has any idea of ​​the security risk. But negative publicity is always publicity.
