We’re not sure how many big-time Cameron Diaz fans are in your company, but if there are any, you may want to warn them to be especially careful when they search for information about the actress.
Diaz was recently named the most dangerous celebrity to search for on the web by the folks at security company McAfee, Inc.
For the fourth year in a row, McAfee researched pop culture’s most famous people to find the riskiest athletes, musicians, politicians, comedians and Hollywood stars on the web.
Cybercriminals like to use the names of celebrities to lure visitors to sites that are actually mired in malicious software. This means the innocent searcher looking for the latest videos or pictures of their pop culture icon could end up with a computer full of malware.
The full list of the 10 most dangerous celebrity searches:
- Cameron Diaz
- Julia Roberts
- Jessica Biel
- Gisele Bündchen
- Brad Pitt
