Cameron Diaz Will Give You a Virus: McAffee Most Dangerous Celebs
Cameron Diaz Leads McAffe's 'Most Dangerous Celebrities': Most Likely to Give You a Computer Virus
Watch out for Cameron Diaz. She has a one in ten chance of giving you a computer virus.
Web users love celebrities. This is a proven fact. If there's a sextape, or nude photos, or upskirts, or fights, or arrests involving anyone who has ever been on TV, you'll be searching for it. Those who create and spread viruses and trojans know it, too. Each year, McAffee releases a top ten list of celebrities who are used as bait to lure you into getting pwned.
This year, Cameron Diaz unseated Jessica Biel at the top of the most-dangerous celebrities list. Weirdly, Lady Gaga is only at #37. Justin Bieber only made it to #46.
This is, of course, nothing to do with Diaz herself- one doubts she sits up late at night writing injectable code.
Top 10 Most Dangerous Celebrities:
- Cameron Diaz
- Julia Roberts
- Jessica Biel
- Gisele Bundchen
- Brad Pitt
- Adriana Lima
- Jennifer Love Hewitt/Nicole Kidman (tie)
- Tom Cruise
- Heidi Klum/Penelope Cruz (tie)
- Anna Paquin

Anyone looking for the latest videos or pictures could end up with a malware-ridden computer instead of just trendy content.
“This year, the search results for celebrities are safer than they’ve been in previous years, but there are still dangers when searching online,” said Dave Marcus, security researcher for McAfee Labs.
