For the last three years McAfee has been releasing a report of the most dangerous celebrates to search for on the internet. "Cybercriminals are star watchers too–they latch onto popular celebrities to encourage the download of malicious software in disguise," Jeff Green, senior vice president of McAfee Avert Labs, said in a statement with the list release. "Consumers’ obsession with celebrity news and culture is harmless in theory, but one bad download can cause a lot of damage to a computer."

The number one danger search was Jessica Biel. Coming in second on this year’s list of the most dangerous to search for is Beyonce, followed by Jennifer Aniston which resulted in more than 40% of the search results for "Jennifer Aniston screen savers" containing viruses. Last year it was Brad Pitt and before him it was Paris Hilton.

The whole list :

Top 15 most dangerous celebrities

Interesting list and one that must be searched all of the time. As always down load the needed protections and most of all watch out where your searches lead. Hopefully, the rest of the bloggers will keep you interested enough to stay right here.

    If in doubt, don't download it or save it no matter what it is. People might want to have their security settings set higher too, to maybe even prevent these malicious intents from even popping up at all. I might make an exception for Megan Fox though. Just kidding.
