Following the attack, surfers visiting the ParisHilton.com site were prompted to install an "update" via a dialogue box.

    I'm confused

    i just don't get it. Where's the Paris Hilton angle in this story?

    But surely...

    ...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.

    Trojans

    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?

    You decide!

    (I couldn't find a PR icon...)

    I'm embarrassed

    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.

    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....

    Naughty

    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?

    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>

    Good memory, though

    Never forgets a face once sat on.

    Or, should my title be "Good mammary...". Dunno.

    Paris, natch.
