Brad Pitt most dangerous search on the web - Active Home
According to McAfee, one of the leading anti virus software companies, there are dangers inherent in searching for information on leading celebrities. This is because malicious websites target their names in an attempt to install malware onto users machines via screensavers, wallpapers and so on. The leading "dangerous" celebrities are:
- Brad Pitt
- Justin Timberlake
- Lindsey Lohan
- Cameron Diaz
- George Clooney
- Angelina Jolie
Thanks for that, Phil. Personally I can't imagine either of us searching for information about any of these celebrities and you, dear readers, are, of course, above such things too.
Question: Is your home computer safe from such searches?
Just at the moment my elder grand-daughter would be looking for Daniel Radcliffe, just about anything by, from or about Daniel has this very-nearly-twelve-year-old drooling so she's probably OK.
