By Googling the name [movieperson id="188949"]Jessica Biel[/movieperson], you could very well be putting your laptop in peril. This according to McAfee Inc., one of the nation's leading providers of technology security.
This week, the company released a report that reveals that searches for the 27-year-old actress are more likely to lead to online threats like spyware, spam and viruses than searches for any other celeb.
According to The Associated Press, McAfee's report claims that those searching for the actress online have a one in five chance of ending up at a Web site designed to infiltrate and compromise their computer. This is the third such report the firm has released. Last year, Brad Pitt's name topped the list of most dangerous celebs online.
But Biel isn't the Web's only dangerous star search. Following her, in order of most dangerous celeb names to search are Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady and Jessica Simpson.
"Cybercriminals are star watchers too," said Jeff Green, senior vice president of McAfee's product development team. "They latch onto popular celebrities to encourage the download of malicious software in disguise."
McAfee was quick to note that President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were surprisingly safe searches, coming in at #34 and #39, respectively, on the list.
