Armin van Buuren is the most risky celebrity on the internet, according to Intel Security’s annual ratings, the Guardian reports.
Intel Security research found that clicking on results generated by searching for “Armin van Buuren” combined with the terms “free MP4”, “HD downloads”, or “torrent” yields nearly a 1 in 5 chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware. Country star Bryan, Usher, Britney Spears and Jay Z round out the top five. So beware – don’t look up information on these people and just be careful out there on the “world wide web”.
A Katy Perry search carries a almost 15 per cent chance of connecting with a tainted site, AP added. Awards shows, TV programmes, movie and album launches and celebrity breakups are often the pegs for fake pages. You – and your computer – might end up getting a lot more than you bargained for.
Last year, Jimmy Kimmel topped the list (he’s in 26th place now), and Amy Schumer and Betty White both made the top ten this year.
