Cyber security firm McAfee has named Ruby Rose the most ‘dangerous’ celebrity on the internet. Ruby Rose is an Australian model, DJ, recording artist, actress, and television presenter. The characters played by her were most dangerous ones like an inmate in “Orange is the new black” and as a scientist in “The Meg”. But now she herself is officially dangerous. Cyber security takes pride in crowning her the most dangerous celebrity.
The celebrities that land users on websites while searching for them with viruses and malwares are known as dangerous ones. The top 10 celebrities include Kristin Cavallari (at no.2), Marion Cotillard (at no.3), the original wonder woman – Lynda Carter (at no.4), Rose Byrne(at no.5), Debra Messing(at no.6), Kourtney Kardashian (at no.7), Amber Heard (at no.8), Kelly Ripa (at no.9) and Brad William Henke (at no.10).
The survey is to alert the users against clicking on suspicious links. McAfee helps the users to be careful and apply updated security fixes. Ruby Rose replaced Avril Lavigne, who was crowned the same title last year. There are many musicians as well in the list; Shakira, Adele, and Diddy are just a few to name.
The cyber security threats are intended towards infecting the devices and stealing the identity. Cyber criminals often use the unsuspecting users’ fascination for celebrities to make them visit malicious websites. So, while you perform a simple search to know what Ruby did in the latest episode or what Marion Cotillard wore for a certain event, be careful against landing up on a dangerous website.
The company has used its own site ratings to come up with results and also relied on sites like Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
