Paris Hilton Web Site Hacked: ParisHilton.com Virus

Peoples Choice Awards Press Room

Paris Hilton’s been infected. It was only a matter of time.

Just weeks after her Los Angeles home was burglarized, sneaky Internet hackers have littered the heiress’s official Web Site with malacious spywire by thanks to out-of-date software on the site.

According to computer-security researchers at ScanSafe, ParisHilton.com was hacked and infected with a series of page codes which redirect visitors to another Web Site which downloads “malware” viruses, that then tries to obtain login information to their online bank accounts.

“Some parts of Paris Hilton’s website were infected with malware, a nasty bit of viruses and spyware that can try to access your computer and get bank records and credit card numbers,” Garry Scott, a spokesman for computer safety consultant ScanSafe, said Wednesday.
