If you’re killing some time on afternoon looking for a new desktop image, you might want to think twice before going in search of “Project Runway” host and supermodel Heidi Klum. According to the Internet security firm McAfee, you have a one in 10 chance of having your computer infected with some nasty piece of malware or another when you click on a result for her name.
Cameron Diaz, Piers Morgan, Jessica Biel and Katherine Heigl, Mila Kunis, Anna Paquin, Adriana Lima, Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone/Brad Pitt/Rachel McAdams round out the Top 10 most dangerous.
Meanwhile fans of Gisele Bundchen, Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts can breathe a little easier since they all dropped out of the top tier this year.
“Hot movies and TV shows, awards and industry accolades seem to be more of a factor than headline-grabbing activity,” says McAfee’s director of Web security research Paula Greve, noting that 2011’s tabloid poster boy Charlie Sheen is only ranked at No. 59 (right behind Lady Gaga). “Still, searching for any celebrity can bring up risky sites and the public should use caution by not clicking on any page that looks suspicious.”
