Actress Jessica Biel has overtaken Brad Pitt as the most dangerous celebrity to search in cyberspace, according to Internet security company McAfee Inc.
For the third consecutive year, McAfee surveyed which A-list celebrity was the riskiest to track on the Internet after Pitt topped the list last year and Paris Hilton came in first in 2007.
Biel, 27, who shot to fame in the TV show “7th Heaven” and most recently starred in “Easy Virtue,” was deemed the most dangerous, with fans having a one-in-five chance of landing at a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, and viruses.
Here are the top 10 ‘risky’ US celebrities and the percentage of websites related to them, which were found to be potentially harmful:
1. Jessica Beil
3. Tom Brady (New England Patriots quarterback)
4. Jessica Simpson
5. Jennifer Anitson
7. Miley Cyrus
8. Megan Fox
9. Angelina Jolie
10. Ashley Tidsdale
