Everyone who’s anyone loves Emma Watson. That’s just a fact. You can find it on Wikipedia.com/Facts/You-can’t-make-this-stuff-up.com. Unfortunately for us, the cyber-terrorists know this — and they’re using it to their advantage.
McAfee, the virus scan people who freeze your computer every 6 minutes with a scan, released a report that Emma Watson is the most dangerous celebrity to search online. Not because you’ll instantly grow jealous of her beauty, talent and celebrity friends, but because 1 out of 8 Emma Watson searches will lead to a malicious site.
And not malicious like a “mean-spirited” site, but malicious like your computer will permanately shut down in approximately 10 minutes because it just got infected with the world’s worst virus — or it will keep your computer on, but just steal your entire identity.
So for people who spend their days googling Emma Watson, this could be devastating news. However, if you’re not a hardcore stalker and only a major fan then you should be okay. Just don’t click on anything that seems too good to be true.
