The Net’s Deadliest Celebrities

Jessica Biel

Apparently Jessica Biel could kill your computer. According to McAfee’s annual report on the riskiest celebs to search for, the 27-year-old actress’ name poses the biggest threat when it comes to viruses, spyware, and other online threats popping up in search results. Search terms like “Jessica Biel photos” and “Jessica Biel screensavers” have a 1 in 5 chance of landing you somewhere you don’t want to be. (Though on the other hand, you also have a 4 in 5 chance of landing on somewhere you do want to be, like naked photos from Powder Blue.)

Biel ousted Brad Pitt from the top position from last year; I wonder if this indicates a shifting demographic for spammers? Pitt is now at #10, and the rest rounding out that list…

  1. Jessica Biel
  2. Beyonce
  3. Jennifer Anniston
  4. Tom Brady
  5. Jessica Simpson
  6. Gisele Bundchen
  7. Miley Cyrus
  8. Megan Fox AND Angelina Jolie (I assume this is a tie rather than representing a dual search term, though I can see that, too…)
  9. Ashely Tisdale
  10. Brad Pitt

McAfee also noted that the Obamas are only in the bottom third of this year’s results.

Hmmmm.  I suppose now I have to go do a search for “Jessica Biel photos” to find one to accompany this post.  Batten down the hatches!
