PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you search the web for celebrities, there are some boldface names you might want think twice about before you click.

There’s no magic about it. It’s the lure of links that provide pictures and information about Emma Watson that’s making it easy for cyber criminals to do their dirty work.

The anti-virus company McAfee says the ‘Harry Potter’ star is the most dangerous celeb to search for online.

One in eight sites uses Watson to trick web surfers into clicking on what they think is legit but instead is a page that delivers malicious software or steals personal info.

Other risky names include Jessica Biel, Eva Mendes, and Selena Gomez.  Jimmy Kimmel is the only guy in the top 20.
