Heidi Klum has been replaced. The young Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame now tops McAfee’s list of the most dangerous celebrities to search for online. Not surprisingly, McAfee found that women “are more dangerous than men,” meaning cyber criminals are more likely to use them to lure unsuspecting Web surfers to sites filled with malicious software that can steal passwords and personal information. Jimmy Kimmel is the only male to make the top 20 list this year.
A simple search for Emma Watson gives you a one-on-eight chance of landing on a malicious site, says McAfee. Shockingly, those adding the words “free downloads” and “nude pictures” to the name are much more likely to run into problems. The full top 10 list is after the jump.
1. Emma Watson
2. Jessica Biel
3. Eva Mendes
4. Selena Gomez
5. Halle Berry
6. Megan Fox
8. Cameron Diaz
9. Salma Hayek
10. Sofia Vergara
