If you were to be told that an iconic model was the most dan­ger­ous celebrity on the Web, you’d be think­ing wildly of Al-qaeda con­verts on the ramp. But Mcafee says the model is none other than Heidi Klum, the pop­u­lar Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret model and host of re­al­ity TV show

Ac­cord­ing Mcafee, click­ing on links promis­ing sexy pic­tures or videos of Klum comes with a nearly one-in-10 chance of con­tract­ing a bad case of spy­ware, ad­ware, phish­ing scams or other mal­ware. Cy­ber­crim­i­nals of­ten take ad­van­tage of peo­ple’s in­ter­est in celebri­ties to trick them into visit sites that will au­to­mat­i­cally de­posit mal­ware on their PCS. The top 10 on the du­bi­ous list: Klum, Cameron Diaz, Piers Mor­gan, Jes­sica Biel, Kather­ine Heigl, Mila Ku­nis, Anna Paquin, Adriana Lima, Scar­lett Jo­hans­son and Brad Pitt. Tiger Woods is not on the list!
