Paris Hilton Infected

A warning to those who frequent – the site is infected. Likewise if you frequent Paris Hilton…

In a godsend to satirists and late night talk show hosts Paris Hilton’s official website is virus-ridden and “unsafe for browsing”. Gawker has the details:

That’s hot. Paris Hilton’s official website is unsafe for browsing, computer-security researchers have declared, playing host to software which tries to hijack her fans’ bank accounts. Doesn’t the heiress have enough money?

Hilton is actually the victim here, researchers at ScanSafe believe; her website was infiltrated, with code added to its pages which redirects visitors to another website which downloads “malware,” the catchall term for hacker-written code like viruses, that then tries to obtain login information to their online-banking accounts. Out-of-date Web software on Hilton’s site appears to be to blame.

In all fairness, if you frequently visit Paris Hilton’s website you probably deserve online-banking theft.
