Beware of the watson, most dangerous celebrity on the internet


Emma Watson, known mostly for her role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, is the most dangerous person on the internet as the security company McAfee proves thanks to an inquiry they did.

Why is she so dangerous?

Purely and simply because her name is the most used by hackers in order to lure people on hostile websites. Then, thanks to some virus they send to them, they will have access to the user’s private information, security codes or even control of the computer by distance. The links the most used and dangerous are the ones that combine the actress’ s name and the search of nude pictures, or free downloads.

Obviously, she is not the only one used by hackers. Without surprise, Emma Watson is the first one of a long list of names like Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes, Selena Gomez or Megan Fox…

It is amazing how something as private as our computer can be used against us. Be careful before using them, you never know where you will be ending…
