A recent study from the antivirus program McAfee recently found that some of your fave celebs are extremely dangerous to search online. No, they’re not going to cap you for looking them up or anything, but their names are used often to bring harm to your computer. McAfee has performed this study for the last 13 years, researching which famous individuals generate the “riskiest” results that could potentially expose their fans to malicious websites and viruses.
Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, said, “Consumers may not be fully aware that the searches they conduct pose risk, nor may they understand the detrimental effects that can occur when personal information is compromised in exchange for access to their favorite celebrities, movies, TV shows or music. Criminals use deceptive websites to dupe unsuspecting consumers into accessing malicious files or content. It is essential that consumers learn to protect their digital lives from lurking cybercriminals by thinking twice before they click on suspicious links or download content.”
