Paris Hilton's Phone Hacked
Posted on February 21, 2005
Paris Hilton's T-Mobile cell phone has been hacked and her personal contacts, digital photos and notes have been splashed around the Internet. Websites like Defamer and the Drudge Report have been covering the story about the contents of her phone and the many celebrities who will now have to change their numbers because of the hack. The hack follows a recent IBM report that warned that virus and security threats could spread to other electronic devices including cell phones and even cars.
People using these new wired devices might want to consider looking into extra security option or keeping less personal information on them. Apparently, Paris' phone was full of her celebrity contacts when it was hacked. Devices owned by celebrities are going to be big targets of nefarious hackers because of the high-profile data their phones likely contain.
