McAfee develops the Internet's most dangerous celebrity search every year to warn of the dangers of clicking on suspicious links and hacked content. Hackers take advantage of the popularity of the most searched online celebrities to attack vulnerable computers and mobile phones. Criminals add to their famous names malicious malware links like viruses, worms and spyware and steal personal information from users.
McAfee's methodology was to search for the celebrity name associated with a set of words like torrent, nudes, pirate download and streaming. The company warned that generally the names of celebrities are searched together word torrent. This may indicate that users are looking for free streaming pirate services to watch shows and shows.
