Once again, hackers have targeted technology associated with Paris
This time it's her Web site, ParisHilton.com.
Security researchers at ScanSafe report that anyone visiting Hilton's
site risks infection with malware.
"Hilton's popular website, ParisHilton.com, has been outfitted with
malware prompting site visitors to 'update' their system in order to
continue navigating the site," ScanSafe said in an e-mail. "When the
bogus pop-up box appears, users have the option to click 'Cancel' or
'OK.' Regardless of which option they choose, destructive malware will
be downloaded to the user's computer."
InformationWeek could not actually load her site because our Web filter
blocks the site as malicious.
