Film folk like Tabu, Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma and Sonakshi Sinha have been listed among the top 10 personalities generating the riskiest search results online in India due to the malicious sites and viruses linked to their names, according to a list released by a cyber security company.
Yes, the 14th edition of the McAfee's Most Dangerous Celebrity list 2020 is dominated by film folk.
Venkat Krishnapur, vice president of engineering and managing director, McAfee India, said as consumers scout the web for free entertainment now more than ever, cyber criminals trailed close behind, 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 (cyber criminals) 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.
'When consumers compromise on security in favour of convenience and freebies, they put their digital lives at risk. It is vital that fans stay vigilant, avoid suspicious links that promise free content and think twice before clicking,' he added.
