Modern hackers ready to attack global security systems

The hacked smart phone of celebrity Paris Hilton has proved that hackers never lag behind technological progress. Practically all newspapers and news agencies provided an extensive coverage of the incident, which has recently happened to Paris Hilton and her cellular phone. A 17-year-old young man from the USA hacked the smart phone of the famous actress and co-owner of Hilton hotels, and uploaded Paris's address book on the Internet. As a result, one could dial the number of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Anna Kournikova, Eminem, Adrian Brody, Andy Roddick and other world-known personas.....

Digging in the contents of Paris Hilton's phone, the American teenager found quite candid photographs of the celebrity and her friends, which also appeared online.

The "heroic deed" of the American hacker was quite impressive. It also unveiled the advantages (and probably disadvantages) of modern technologies that people use in their everyday lives. It seemed only a short while ago that cellular phone viruses could not exist. Hackers try to keep up with present-day reality, though: they have managed to conduct over 237 million attacks on personal computers during the first six months of the current year only, IBM said.
