Search Online For Cameron Diaz At Your Own Risk

I have no idea why anyone would be searching online for Cameron Diaz screensavers, but according to McAfee, if you feel the need to fill up your monitor with a pic of the thespian, you’re putting your computer in harm’s way.

McAfee put out their annual list of Most Dangerous Celebrities In Cyberspace. Shrek star Diaz topped the list because apparently 10% of search results for her name pointed to “risky” sites and searching for “Cameron Diaz and screensavers” opened users up to a 19% chance of malicious downloads.

Here’s the complete list of celebrities:

1. Cameron Diaz

2. Julia Roberts

3. Jessica Biel

4. Gisele Bündchen

5. Brad Pitt

6. Adriana Lima

7. (Tie) Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicole Kidman

8. Tom Cruise

9. (Tie) Heidi Klum, Penelope Cruz

10. Anna Paquin

    I think the two ties should duke it out for the titles, Celebrity Deathmatch style!

  2. ArtlessDodger says:

    How is Tom Cruise 8th on this list? I didn’t know he was still so popular…

    • Senrath Menru says:

      It’s not ranked by popularity. It’s ranked by % of search results that are malicious sites.

      • BomanTheBear says:

        Every one of the malicious sites that shows up if you search for Tom Cruise is related to Scientology.

  3. mexifelio says:

    Why is that an annual list? Those names probably change from month to month depending on the latest scandal.

  4. diasdiem says:

    Who still uses screen savers?

  5. The Cynical Librarian says:

    Dear god, people are still searching for Julia Roberts?

  6. Destron says:

    What, no Jessica Alba?

  7. WorkingDad says:

    Guess I’m outta touch.
    A few of those names don’t ring any bells.

    My Dad called me up last night to tell me his computer was acting up. It sounded like Conficker, with the “you need to pay for a this to remove what you have” message. So I told him to unplug it and bring it to me. As he was handing it to me this morning, he told me that his friend had been “looking at smut on it”. I cleaned it out, but I’m not sure what to tell him now. Do I warn him not to let his friend search for “smut” while on his computer?

    • deadandy says:

      His friend was looking at smut on it? Is this the same friend whose cigarettes he was “just holding” in middle school?

      • GuyGuidoEyesSteveDaveâ„¢ says:

        Yeah. I know his friend. He is more computer literate than my Dad, but is still the kind of person who sends forwards he receives in his email. Sigh.

    • myCatCracksMeUp says:

      “His friend” should probably stop looking for smut, unless he becomes much more internet and computer savvy.

    • zekebullseye says:

      Tell him his friend can get his own computer. Then he can muck it up all he wants.

  9. H3ion says:

    Ah. Kate Smith. I’m safe.

  10. ArmyCats says:

    Cameron Diaz is so sexy that I won’t mind a virus or two just to search for her pictures or anything related to her… :3

    Screen saver or wall paper?
