(Newser) – Jessica Biel is the most dangerous celebrity on the web, says a security tech firm. McAfee reported that searches for the 27-year-old actress are more likely to lead to online threats such as spyware and viruses than searches for any other celebrity. Fans searching for the actress have a one-in-five chance of ending up at a website designed to damage one's computer.

It’s the third annual report on the subject from McAfee, which last year found that Brad Pitt was the "most dangerous" celeb online. Following Biel in the report, in order, were Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Brady, and Jessica Simpson.
