A recent list published by Intel Security has made me realize that just because someone makes you laugh, doesn’t mean you can trust them. Security experts at McAfee say that Amy Schumer tops the list of most dangerous celebrities.
The list has been running for 10 years now, and reveals which celebrities – including actors, musicians, and hosts – are most likely to bring up malicious sites when searched online. This means that when you search for someone like Amy Schumer, clicking on the links that appear will present a large chance of being exposed to viruses. For example, the study says that “a Search for ‘Amy Schumer Torrent’ Results in a 33 Percent Chance of Connecting to a Malicious Website”.
Here is the top 10 list, and more details can be found here.
