“Some parts of Paris Hilton’s website were infected with malware, a nasty bit of viruses and spyware that can try to access your computer and get bank records and credit card numbers,” Garry Scott, a spokesman for computer safety consultant ScanSafe, told E! News.

“This is not the first time she’s had these problems due to her high profile.”

Scott says celebrity sites are common targets for cybercriminals because of the high traffic on their sites.

Thankfully, Hilton fans need not worry about catching the bug.

“Visitors to the site are now completely safe,” says Scott.

Look out also when you get unsolicited mail citing Paris Hilton or any other celebrity download. It´s bound to give you a headache and probably a virus.
