“Just Google Me Baby!”

Or maybe not. While you are searching online for some of your favorite celebrity bangers, scammers are also there searching for victims. And you and your computer are at serious risk!

For the 6th year in a row, McAfee researched popular culture’s most famous people to reveal which ones are the riskiest to search for online. Emma Watson has taken over the #1 spot from Heidi Klum as the Most Dangerous Celebrity to search for on the Web (#riskyceleb). This year also marks the first time that the entire Top 10 list is comprised of all women.

Hit the flip to find out who ranks in the top 20 for celebrities who pose the highest virus risk!

Kate Upton

Currently among our faves for Beckys who model bikinis, we weren’t surprise that Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and GQ cover girl landed in the #20 slot on this list

Venus Williams

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Venus rank higher than Serena on any list, but maybe it’s all that chitchatter she’s been doing about her Italian boo thang that has folks checking for Venus online.

Carey Mulligan

This actress tends to keep a low profile, but we’re guessing that between her starring role in Baz Luhrmann’s “Great Gatsby” film and a recent marriage to Mumford & Sons musician Marcus Mumford she gets more than a few clicks.

Bar Rafaeli

Once Leo DiCaprio’s leading lady in real life, the Israeli supermodel is probably being searched for more these days for her famed bikini body. You likey?

Elle McPherson

Legendary for her famed supermodel bod, this model turned lingerie designer is still famous for keeping things right and tight.

Taylor Swift

We’re guessing that singer and serial dater Swift has online searchers looking for her embarrassing interaction with Kanye West at the VMA’s or her new boo who happens to be one of the Kennedys!

    Elizabeth Banks

    Hunger Games hottie (okay maybe not in that role) has been racking up quite the theatrical resume, so we’re guessing between her part in that blockbuster as well as “What To Expect When You’re Expecting” and “People Like Us” has people hitting up Google looking to learn more about her.

    Jimmy Kimmel

    We know he’s a big deal late night talk show host, but we’re not quite sure what sets him apart from all of the other hosts — and men period– who failed to land a spot. Maybe it’s this kiss with Charlie Sheen that did the trick?

    Isla Fisher

    The actress and mother of two is mostly known for being “The Dictator” and “Borat” star Sacha Baron Cohen’s boo, but we loved her in “Wedding Crashers” and “Confessions of a Shopaholic.”

    Amber Heard

    A Hollyweird newcomer, actress Amber Heard has gained a lot of fame for being openly bi and also for scooping up actor Johnny Depp on the rebound after his split from Vanessa Paradis.

    Salma Hayek

    The actress, producer and director received an Academy Award for her role as Frida Kahlo in “Frida” and recently starred in “Savages.” She is currently in the news for her controversial remarks about her Mexican heritage in a Vogue interview. She is married to billionaire François-Henri Pinault.

    Sofia Vergara

    The Columbian actress and model best known for her comedic role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on ABC’s Emmy Award winning “Modern Family” rounds out the top 10 list. She also starred in the “The Three Stooges” film this year and was recently named one of Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women and highest paid TV actress. She recently announced her engagement to businessman Nick Loeb.

    Cameron Diaz

    2010’s Most Dangerous Celebrity fell to eighth place, with searches resulting in slightly fewer risky sites this year. She was most recently in the spotlight for allegedly dating Diddy. She is rumored to star in “Expendables 3.”


    The belly-dancing singer/songwriter best known for her songs “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Whenever, Wherever” comes in at number 7. She was recently named one of Forbes’ World’s Most Powerful Women and was ranked number 6 on Forbes’ Top 10 Best Social Media Superstars.


    Megan Fox

    The sizzling actress rose 9 spots compared to her number 15 spot last year. She is currently in the news for her pregnancy with husband Brian Austin Green and will be seen in the upcoming film “This is 40”.

    Halle Berry

    The Academy Award winning actress is famous for her stand out roles in action and horror films including “Catwoman” and “Gothika”. Berry is in the spotlight for her custody battle with baby daddy Gabriel Aubry.

    Selena Gomez

    The tween musician and actress is best known for her role as Alex Russo on Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place” and for dating teen heartthrob Justin Bieber. She has been cast in the upcoming film “Parental Guidance Suggested” and was recently named one of Forbes’ Top 10 Best Social Media Superstars.

    Eva Mendes

    A new addition to the list, Mendes has starred in films including “2 Fast 2 Furious” and “Hitch.” She is currently in the news for dating Ryan Gosling.

    Jessica Biel

    The 2009 Most Dangerous Celebrity rose two spots this year from coming in at number 4 in 2011. Biel continues to be in the spotlight with fiancée Justin Timberlake and her role in 2012’s “Total Recall.”

    Emma Watson

    Best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” franchise, the British actress tops the list as the 2012 Most Dangerous Celebrity. Watson continues to star in feature films including “My Week with Marilyn” and “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and is an ambassador for Lancôme.

    Really??? Are y’all really checking for Emma Watson like that? On a sidenote, who is surprised (or relieved) to see Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Rihanna all failed to make this list?
