Virus authors reportedly planted malicious code on Paris Hilton's website late last week. Following the attack, surfers visiting the ParisHilton.com site were prompted to install an "update" via a dialogue box. Whether they accepted this update or decided to "cancel" it, a download of a malicious executable was initiated, …
What's the IT or Paris Hilton ang... oh. Sorry.
is she still there yet?
oh dear, what an awful shame.
i just don't get it. Where's the Paris Hilton angle in this story?
...in this case, the multi-talented Ms. Hilton is free of any responsibility for the attack. She may know less about computer security than I know about drunken orgies in European nightclubs, but there's no way she actually built and maintains her Web sites, no? Airhead or not, seems to me the person who's responsible here is whatever clod she's paying to do her Web site.
The T-Mobile and Facebook thing I can see; presumably she chose her own passwords, after all. But unless someone's going to say that she designed and coded the Web site herself--a prospect I find unlikely--this one ain't her fault.
Oh, she has a website? Wonders never cease... :-)

Paris Hilton spreading viruses

Bless her little cotton socks :(
Thumbs down - cos everyone love PH, and everyone else is gonna get on the PH icon tip...
I think they sell those out of machines in truck stop rest rooms for $0.50.
Paris because she already knows what a Trojan is good for.
Paris™® forecasts massive Q1 hotness drop
Paris™® has warned that her "Hotness™®" will fall sharply below previous estimates due to collapsing demand from her users and sex-tape makers in the global recession.
In a December conference call with people who care, Paris™® projected a "Hotness™®" decline of about 32.1 per cent during Q1 of '09.
Better publicity through IT insecurity
genuine problem or canny PR?
(I couldn't find a PR icon...)
Well, not really. Never been to her web site to have no idea what's ever been there. Can't really understand WHY anyone would go there, either. I guess I'm getting too old. I'm certainly not getting any better in my taste for the female of the species.
Titter ye not
So those backdoor rumours are true...
You deserve what you get
Anybody stupid enough to visit her site deserves to be infected with a trojan.
Paris because... ...do I really need a reason this time?!
Ok lets face it
Anyone who goes to parishilton.com doesn't have a credit card. There pre teen's looking for hair and makeup tips.
Any self respecting adult looking for paris hilton will likely Google her along with "nude" as the search query.
Spreaders??? You wonder?
Should've thought that was fuc*king obvious...She has already reportedly admitted to having two "Spreaders".
Get out more. Or, in more....
Spreading a trojan is pretty naughty.
...but not as naughty as filming yourself shagging and then leaking it to the internet.
So, now we know where to get the trojan but where can we get the grunt-flick?
Re: Titter ye not
Yeah she loves the backdoor action....
On her face of it...!
Like website, like owner!
IT angle> Her website got violated through sloppy security.
Paris angle> She didn't have a career until her security got sloppy on video! Only with two different men though! <cough>
<Dons coat while texting 17,000 taxi firms...
Good memory, though
Never forgets a face once sat on.
Or, should my title be "Good mammary...". Dunno.
