Jessica Biel Replaces Brad As Most Dangerous Celeb Search

Perhaps any reader could not resist to look for latest gossip about Jessica Biel but they are facing some risks.

The actress is considered “the most dangerous celebrity to search in cyberspace,” according to security firm McAfee. She replaced Brad Pitt as she top billing as “the riskiest” search.

McAfee explained in a press release: “Fans searching for ‘Jessica Biel’ or ‘Jessica Biel downloads,’ ‘Jessica Biel wallpaper,’ ‘Jessica Biel screensavers,’ ‘Jessica Biel photos’ and ‘Jessica Biel videos’ have a one in five chance of landing at a Web site that’s tested positive for online threats like spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware,” or malicious software.”

The released statement also indicates that looking for the newest celebrity news and downloads could give serious damage to one’s personal computer.

This is McAfee’s third year of the list of “most dangerous” celebrities to search for on the Web, with the company using its SiteAdvisor technology to hunt for celebrity names “that produce the largest number of risky sites and overall risk percentage, when searched on the Web.” Results were gathered in July.
