Lily Collins, Phil’s Daughter, Is The Most Dangerous To Search For Online
By Ian Bush
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It might not be Another Day in Paradise if you’re doing a web search for the daughter of one of the world’s biggest music stars.
Hollywood is banking on Phil Collins’ daughter Lily to be the next big thing.
Apparently, so are computer criminals.
The anti-virus company McAfee says web searches for the ‘Mortal Instruments’ actress — more than any other celeb — are turning up results that might look legit, but instead take you to a page that could deliver a virus to your PC.
Singer Avril Lavinge is #2 on the list; Sandra Bullock is third. John Hamm, the only guy in the top ten.
Malicious search results are a favorite way for hackers to find their way onto your hard drive.
Google, Bing, and McAfee offer free filters that alert you to compromised sites — though they’re not foolproof.
