Lily Collins has been deemed the ‘most dangerous’ celebrity to search for on the internet. Security company McAfee has determined that those searching for the actress online are most likely to land on a malicious website.
Behind the Collins, whose credits include Mirror, Mirror, The Blind Side and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, are Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin and Zoe Saldana.
According to The Huffington Post, there was only one male in the top 10 - Mad Men star Jon Hamm.
Searching for Collins, the daughter of singer Phil Collins, gives internet users a 14.5 percent chance to end up on a dangerous website. McAfee determined their findings by searching celebrity names along with the words “free app download” and “nude pictures.”
Last year, Emma Watson was named the ‘most dangerous’ celebrity to search on the internet. At the time, searching her would give users a 12.6 percent chance of landing on a dangerous site.
Chief technical officer at McAfee EMEA, Raj Samani, said “We have got used to accessing the latest gossip and pictures of our favourite celebrities on demand. But we need to remember that cybercriminals take advantage of the latest cultural trends, new movies and hit TV shows to target unsuspecting consumers seeking more information.”
