Avril Lavigne Has Been Named The Internet’s ‘Most Dangerous’ Celebrity And This Is Why
Don't Google her, for christ's sake.
There have been some pretty weird rumours that have circulated about Avril Lavigne over the years (most notably that one about her dying in 2003 and having been replaced by a clone) but whatever you do, you shouldn’t attempt to Google her.
That’s because, according to cybersecurity company McAfee, internet searching the star could likely infect your computer with malware. In fact, in the company’s annual survey of online celebrity searches associated with viruses, Avril came out on top.
In a statement, McAfee explained:
“Cybercriminals continue to use the fascination of consumers with celebrity culture to drive unsuspecting users to potentially malicious websites that can be used to install malware, steal personal information and even passwords.”
Also on the list, was Bruno Mars, Carly Rae Jepsen, Zayn Malik and Celine Dion.
Hmm. We’ll just get our celebrity fix on Twitter instead.
Have your say
