Bollywood star Tabu, Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma, and Sonakshi Sinha are among the top 10 personalities who generate the riskiest search results online, due to the malicious sites and viruses linked to their names, according to McAfee’s Most Dangerous Celebrity list 2020.

While Football legend Cristiano Ronaldo tops the list, “Andhadhun” actor Tabu is at the second spot and “Thappad” actor Pannu is at three. This is followed by actor-producer Sharma at four and “Dabangg” actor Sinha at five.

The McAfee’s Most Dangerous Celebrity list 2020 is dominated by the names of the film industry as only Ronaldo is representing sports.

Ruled by the entertainment industry, the list also includes singer Armaan Malik in the sixth spot, actor Sara Ali Khan at seventh, television star Divyanka Tripathi at eight, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan at ninth and playback singer Arijit Singh at 10th.

McAfee India’s Vice President of Engineering and Managing Director Venkat said cybercriminals trail close as behind as consumers scout the web for free entertainment now, more than ever, capitalising on this interest.

“Unsuspecting users often look for free and pirated content such as major sports events, movies, TV shows, along with images and leaked videos of their favourite celebs. Bad actors (cybercriminals) leverage consumers’ fascination with pop culture and drive unsuspecting fans to malicious websites that install malware on their devices, potentially putting personal information at risk,” Krishnapur said in a statement.

Krishnapur explained that when consumers put their digital lives at risk when they compromise on security in favour of convenience and freebies.

“It is vital that fans stay vigilant, avoid suspicious links that promise free content and think twice before clicking,” he added.
