Paris Hilton’s website has been compromised and used to steal information from site visitors. —  Someone has reportedly hacked into the website of Paris Hilton and attached a malicious information stealing program. As reported by PC World, ScanSafe, a security vendor, found that had been infected with a Trojan program that requests sensitive information from visitors through a pop up window.

Mary Landesman with ScanSafe is quoted in the PC World report as stating, “The popup points to a directory on that Web site; that’s where the malware is being loaded from… The big thing with Paris Hilton is the number of visitors that she gets… It’s always doubly concerning when we see a high-profile Web site get compromised.”

Landesman is further noted to express the belief that many other websites might be infected with their own version of the malware.

The website was still deemed unsafe for visitors at the time of the report.
