Ac­tress tops list of ‘most dan­ger­ous’ celebrities on­line

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

Amy Schumer is the ‘most dan­ger­ous’ celebrity on the in­ter­net – and not just be­cause of her no-holds­barred per­son­al­ity.

In­tel Se­cu­rity has an­nounced that the ac­tress and co­me­dian knocked elec­tronic dance mu­sic DJ Ar­min van Bu­uren off of the top of its 10th an­nual list of the most dan­ger­ous celebrities on­line.

A search for the Train­wreck star car­ries a more than 16 per cent chance of con­nect­ing with a site that car­ries viruses or mal­ware. And a search for ‘Amy Schumer Tor­rent’ re­sults in a 33 per cent chance of con­nect- ing to a ma­li­cious web­site. Schumer was fol­lowed on In­tel’s list by Justin Bieber, Car­son Daly, Will Smith, Ri­hanna and Mi­ley Cyrus. “Con­sumers re­main fas­ci­nated with celebrity cul­ture and go on­line to find the lat­est pop cul­ture news,” said Gary Davis of In­tel Se­cu­rity. “With this crav­ing for real-time in­for­ma­tion, many search and click with­out con­sid­er­ing po­ten­tial se­cu­rity risks. Cy­ber­crim­i­nals know this and take ad­van­tage of this be­hav­iour by at­tempt­ing to lead them to un­safe sites loaded with mal­ware. “As a re­sult, con­sumers need to un­der­stand what pre­cau­tions to take to en­able safe on­line ex­pe­ri­ences.”

Schumer wasn't the only funny per­son to make the cut. Other co­me­di­ans in­cluded Chris Hard­wick (No. 7), Daniel Tosh (No. 8), Nikki Glaser (No. 15), Kevin Hart (No. 25), Mindy Kal­ing (No. 30) and Kris­ten Wiig (No. 52).
