Celebrities are very popular decoys for the bad guys to lure non-tech-savvy people into virus-spreading websites. According to McAfee, Cameron Diaz is currently the most dangerous, because if you search for her, there’s a 10% chance you’ll end up at a website spreading virus.
This year, Julia Roberts is the 2nd most dangerous and last years “winner”, Jessica Biel, is down to 3rd spot. On fourth is Gisele (who’s that?!) and Brad Pitt as 5th most dangerous celebrity search query.
McAfee says that the reason for Diaz being leader of the pack right now is due to her appearance in two big-name movies, “Knight and Day” and “Shrek”.
So, be careful out there!
