Carrie Underwood Included on List of the Most Dangerous Celebrities in Cyberspace
Carrie Underwood ranks No. 51 on a recent list of the most dangerous celebrities on the internet. The study looks at what famous names cyber-criminals use to lure people to sites containing malicious software. Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum beat out last year’s most dangerous celeb, Cameron Diaz, to lead this year’s pack of McAfee’s Most Dangerous Celebrities.
Ironically, Underwood is known for not making use of some of the social media platforms other stars invest time in. She doesn’t have a Twitter account, so if you think you’ve been following the ‘Before He Cheats’ singer there, well … that’s why she’s on the list. She is the only country star on the list, now in its fifth year.
Female celebrities — especially actresses — dominate the Top 10, with Piers Morgan being the only male on the first page. In general, Hollywood stars are a riskier search than singers and athletes. Big names like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are buried at No. 49 and No. 58 on the list. When you get that low, less than three percent of searches yield risky results. Since Underwood is at No. 51, fans don’t have to worry too much when they’re searching for the latest news about her.
