McAfee: Emma Watson most 'dangerous' celebrity to search for online According to McAfee, actress Emma Watson is the most dangerous celebrity to search for online, if you hope to avoid malware.
Watson is best known for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise.

The actress is followed by Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes and Selena Gomez. Biel is no stranger to the list, having topped it in 2009.

McAfee adds that when users search for their favorite stars, whether it be pictures or news, they are not as active in monitoring what they click.

For Emma Watson, for example, there is a one-in-eight chance of reaching a malicious site. Adding extra terms like "Emma Watson nude pictures" highly increases the chances, adds the anti-virus company.

I just don't get it. She's not even all that pretty. She was cute when she was a kid, that's about it.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Lets renegotiate them.

I could never understand the people that follow an ordinary person to such lengths, I mean, just because she is an actress, how does she titillate a person so much to hunt her down online ? as i have seen and met nicer women socialising every day and have seen more beautiful women just walking down the road. I don't see the attraction.

That blew my mind. I could of swore that Susan Boyle would be topping the list.

I wonder how much her publicist paid McAfee for her to have that title? If people weren't searching for pics of her before, they are now.

actually, publicists don't spend money. that's how the entertainment money hierarchy works. They rape it from their actor/musicians. Never the other way around.

Given the lack of consumer sales, I would venture that McAfee released the info freebies in hopes of boosting their own sales. It just so happens that the actress was caught in the cross fire.

Now having given out the info, idiots in droves will go searching, catch a virus & pay for their new removal tools and anti-virus because they don't know any better.

Some, will try to sue them because they planted the seed of evil in their brain & somehow forced them to go looking for Emma Watson virus'. Simply because that's what idiots do.

Wonder why all the top ten are women? You're right she was cuter as a youngster. Not that she's all that grown up...
