She might not be all that likely to throw her cell phone at your face, but one of the world’s biggest supermodels has been declared the the web’s most dangerous celebrity.
McAfee, a company that makes Internet security products, said in a study released Thursday that searching for downloads and screensavers that feature Project Runway’s Heidi Klum have a one in ten chance of “landing on a malicious website with spyware, spam, phishing and other viruses designed to steal personal information.”
The study, conducted every year to figure out how dangerous Googling your favorite celeb really is, only placed two fashion people in the top ten. Klum’s colleague, Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima, clocks in as the eighth most dangerous celeb to go hunting for online. But it’s worth noting that even though the celebrities who made it to the top of the list are notable and totally famous in their own right, a few people who are more famous (or infamous) than they are ended up much farther down the list. Per Reuters:
Making news headlines does not seem to be a factor. Charlie Sheen was ranked 59 in the 2011 list, despite his acrimonious departure from television show “Two and A Half Men”, and Lindsay Lohan was 18th despite being in an out of court and jail again this year.
We wonder if throwing that glass at this week’s V magazine party will contribute to LiLo’s ranking next year? At any rate, check out the top ten most dangerous celebs to search for (and then, you know, don’t search for them) below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
