Lily Collins may look harmless, but don’t let those soft brown eyes fool you. The actress was recently named the most dangerous celebrity on the internet.
According to a new McAfee report, Lily Collins is the most dangerous celebrity to search for online. The actress beat out last year’s winner (loser?) Emma Watson as well as Avril Lavigne, Sandra Bullock, and John Hamm.
Paula Greve, director of web security research at McAfee, said that cybercriminals often use celebrities, breaking news, and other hot topics to lure people to malicious sites.
Greve said: “Today’s consumers often are completely unaware of security risks when searching for celebrity and entertainment news, images and videos online, sacrificing safety for immediacy… Cybercriminals prey on consumers’ addiction to breaking news and leverage this behavior to lead them to unsafe sites that can severely infect their computers and devices and steal personal data.”
McAffee said that people searching for terms like “Lily Collins and nude pictures” are frequently redirected to malware sites. The internet security company reports that there is a 14 percent chance of landing on a malicious website when searching for Lily Collins.
Collins has is having a pretty good year with movies like The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones. In fact, the actress is so popular these days that even her eyebrows have their own Twitter account.
But don’t go searching Google for “Lily Collins Eyebrows” because, well, you know… it could be dangerous. Instead, (get ready for a shameless plug) you can read about the actress’ eyebrows right here on The Inquisitr.
