Be careful when surfing "celebrity sites"
CNN has a story “Most dangerous celebs to search online”. They include Jessica Biel and George Brad Pitt. Even relatively new young celebrities have a lot of such sites.
A lot of celebrities have unauthorized fan sites that may spawn malware, according to analysts at McAfee, a major anti-virus company. If you’re a less popular or flashy celebrity, you probably won’t encounter these sorts of unauthorized imitations. I don’t have any (pun!).
Much safer is to go to sites developed my major media outlets, like CWTV.
However, I haven’t gotten any unusual warnings from Spysweeper from any celebrity sites, authorized or not.
The CNN story is here.
