If you seek Amy

Comedian Amy Schumer is the most dangerous cyber-celebrity of 2016 according to Intel Security.

The funny girl’s risky search status was revealed in the latest edition of an annual study by Intel Security into which celebrities are most often used by search engine result-manipulating hackers in order to trick surfers into visiting malware infested websites. People looking to download free music or TV are especially at risk from this long-standing tactic.

In the UK, Ellie Goulding’s hit songs together with her frolics with celebrity pals such as Taylor Swift and Princess Beatrice meant she stole the top spot from last year’s most dangerous celebrity, Kelly Brook. ®
