CYBERSECURITY FIRM REVEALS MOST DANGEROUS CELEBRITY ONLINE
NEW York—actress Alexis Bledel has been bookish and sweet on “Gilmore Girls” and “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” But the actress herself is now officially dangerous.
Cybersecurity firm Mcafee on Monday crowned Bledel the most dangerous celebrity on the internet in 2019. Searching for Bledel was more likely to land users on websites that carry viruses or malware.
Trailing Bledel at No. 2 is talk show host James Corden, followed by “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, actress Anna Kendrick, movie star Lupita Nyong’o, talk show star Jimmy Fallon, martial arts master Jackie Chan, the rappers Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj, and, finally, Marvel actress Tessa Thompson at No. 10.
The survey is meant to highlight the danger of clicking on suspicious links. Bad actors will attach malware and malicious links to famous names, hoping fans searching for videos on the internet will fall victim.
