Cameron Diaz: Most Dangerous Celebrity Online
Move over Jessica Biel, Cameron Diaz is the new most dangerous celebrity in cyberspace.
Security company McAfee has named Diaz as the most dangerous celebrity to search for online. According to McAfee, users who search for Diaz through the various search engines in the Internet have a 10 percent chance of clicking a link that could infect their computers. The infection usually allows cybercriminals to take control of computers and use them to steal bank accounts and other financial documents.
McAfee security expert Dave Marcus said getting infected through search engines declined this year, but he warned that users should be extra careful as cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated. “Cybercriminals are getting sneakier in their techniques,” Marcus said.
Following Diaz in the list of most dangerous celebs are Julia Roberts, previous title holder Biel, Gisele Bundchen, Brad Pitt, Brazilian model Adrianna Lima, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Heidi Klum, Penelope Cruz, and “True Blood” actress Anna Paquin.
