    How in the world could this malware be inserted accidentally?
    Ridiculous.

    Oh that's easy -- the developer could have used an MP3 they got off a file-sharing site. It's just a single line of HTML code inside the end of the file, it's trivially easy to do this. Run a scan over some pirated MP3s sometime, you'll see.

    For a second there, I thought this was about the Path app.

    that's exactly what happened, what chas_m said - they boosted an MP3. Perhaps they intended to replace it before they were done developing, but they forgot.

    If they used any files from a file sharing site, it's the developer's responsibility to make sure the files are safe to use.
    That's no excuse.
