Submission + - Harry Potter's Emma Watson most dangerous celebrity to search for on Web (networkworld.com)

alphadogg writes: Emma Watson, best known for her portrayal of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, has been named most dangerous celebrity to search for on the Web in McAfee's annual report. "Searches for the latest Emma Watson pictures and free downloads have more than a 12% chance to land on a malicious site that has tested positive for spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses or other malicious stuff," according to McAfee, whose study is based on the company's site ratings technology. Such searches appear to be even more dangerous when Watson's name is linked with terms such as "nude pictures" and "fakes," as cybercrooks bait bad websites to nab unsuspecting Web surfers, often offering them free downloads.
