Internet security company McAfee has released its third annual report on the riskiest celebrities to search for on the web if you don’t want your results to include spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses or other malware. Jessica Biel tops the list: search for photos of her and you have a one in five chance of clicking on a site that could damage your computer. Which begs the question: Why are people still searching for Jessica Biel?
I think the bad men have totally lost touch: Ashley Tisdale (No. 9), Reese Witherspoon (No. 11), and Lindsay Lohan (No. 14) are more frequently targeted than Kristen Stewart (No. 20), Robert Pattinson (No. 30.), the Jonas Brothers (No. 23), Vanessa Hudgens (No. 17), Zac Efron (No. 21), and Taylor Swift (No. 16). I don’t want to tell them how to do their illegal jobs, but come on now.
The 15 Most Dangerous Celebrities in Cyberspace:
1. Jessica Biel: When “Jessica Biel screensavers” was searched, nearly half of the sites were identified as containing malicious downloads with spyware, adware, and potential viruses, McAfee says
3. Jennifer Aniston: More than 40 percent of the Google search results for “Jennifer Aniston screensavers” contained viruses
4. Tom Brady
5. Jessica Simpson
6. Gisele Bundchen
7. Miley Cyrus
8. Tie: Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie
9. Ashley Tisdale
10. Brad Pitt: He was No. 1 last year
11. Reese Witherspoon
12. Britney Spears
14. Lindsay Lohan
15. Kim Kardashian
I am shockingly safe. How about you?
