Posted on Tuesday, Aug 25 2009 @ 15:18 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
McAfee claims Jessica Biel is the most risky celebrity in cyberspace, a survey by the security company reveals people searching for the 27-year old celebrity have a one-in-five chance of landing at a website with threats like spyware, adware, spam, phishing, and viruses.
Coming second in the list for the second year running was pop star Beyonce, with McAfee finding that putting "Beyonce ringtones" into a search engine yielded a dangerous website linking to a distributor of adware and spyware.

Actress Jennifer Aniston was third, with more than 40 percent of the Google search results for "Jennifer Aniston screensavers" containing nasty viruses.

Young Hollywood stars Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale and Lindsay Lohan all edged out Heidi Montag and Jessica Alba who appeared on last year's list.
