It can be dangerous to search for Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel is no longer the most dangerous celebrity to search for on the Web according to security technology company McAfee. She has been replaced by Cameron Diaz.

Biel dropped to No. 3 behind Diaz and Julia Roberts.

Those three were followed on the most dangeous list by Gisele Bundchen, Brad Pitt, Adriana Lima, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Heidi Klum, Penelope Cruz and Anna Paquin.

McAfee says cybercriminals often use the name of popular celebrities to lure people to sites that are actually laden with malicious software. Anyone looking for the latest videos or pictures could end up with a malware-ridden computer instead of just trendy content.

Clicking on these risky site and downloading files such as photos, videos or screensavers exposes surfers or consumers to the risk of downloading the viruses and malware.
