Strangest List of the Week

EW has a list from McAfee of which celebrity searches are most likely to lead to a virus or something bad.

The 15 Most Dangerous Celebrities in Cyberspace:

1. Jessica Biel: When “Jessica Biel screensavers” was searched, nearly half of the sites were identified as containing malicious downloads with spyware, adware, and potential viruses, McAfee says
2. Beyoncé
3. Jennifer Aniston: More than 40 percent of the Google search results for “Jennifer Aniston screensavers” contained viruses
4. Tom Brady
5. Jessica Simpson
6. Gisele Bundchen
7. Miley Cyrus
8. Tie: Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie
9. Ashley Tisdale
10. Brad Pitt: He was No. 1 last year
11. Reese Witherspoon
12. Britney Spears
13. Rihanna
14. Lindsay Lohan
15. Kim Kardashian

I think Jessica Biel is over-rated. Interesting that Tom Brady is the first guy listed. His lady is number 6, so are the bad virus/malware people Patriot-haters? Ironic that Megan and Angelina are tied, given other parallels.

I wonder what publicists think of this list? Would any hire a virus-writer or someone of that ilk to produce or corrupt lots of websites so that the next ranking would place their client higher on this list?
