British actress Emma Watson might look pretty and harmless, but in the online community, she is considered dangerous.
According to the internet security firm McAfee, Watson is tagged as the “most dangerous” celebrity to search for online. Apparently, a study conducted by the company revealed that the British actress is the favorite celebrity bait for cyber criminals trying to lure Internet users.
The internet security firm says many sites use Watson to trick users into downloading malicious software or to steal personal information. Sources said if someone searched for the 22-year-old actress, there would be a one-out-of-eight chance of landing on a malicious site.
The list of the “most dangerous celebrities to search for online” also includes Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes, Selena Gomez, and Halle Berry.
McAfee warns users to be always aware of malicious content hiding in ‘tiny’ places like shortened URLs which can spread virally through emails, text messages, or social networking sites.
Well, a lot of people like Emma Watson, but I guess it would be best if you seached for her online with caution.
