    Carrie Underwood Included on List of the Most Dangerous Celebrities in Cyberspace

    Carrie Underwood ranks No. 51 on a recent list of the most dangerous celebrities on the internet. The study looks at what famous names cyber-criminals use to lure people to sites containing malicious software. Victoria’s Secret model Heidi Klum beat out last year’s most dangerous celeb, Cameron Diaz, to lead this year’s pack of McAfee’s Most Dangerous Celebrities.

    Ironically, Underwood is known for not making use of some of the social media platforms other stars invest time in. She doesn’t have a Twitter account, so if you think you’ve been following the ‘Before He Cheats’ singer there, well … that’s why she’s on the list. She is the only country star on the list, now in its fifth year.

    Female celebrities — especially actresses — dominate the Top 10, with Piers Morgan being the only male on the first page. In general, Hollywood stars are a riskier search than singers and athletes. Big names like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are buried at No. 49 and No. 58 on the list. When you get that low, less than three percent of searches yield risky results. Since Underwood is at No. 51, fans don’t have to worry too much when they’re searching for the latest news about her.

    Ironically, the only time I ever had a virus on my computer was when I was looking for a Carrie performance (I think it was "Desperado"), and it was a bad link.

    I'm very careful about sites I click on now; it helps to have anti-virus software that will let you know which sites are safe & which ones could be dangerous.


    I don't think this study is weird at all. In this day and age, everyone should be aware of what they're clicking on, and knowing if it's a good idea to check something out or not. It's not stating you shouldn't search for these celebrities, just that you should remember to be careful because they're some of the well-known names who have been known to be more vulnerable to hacking and viruses and such.

    These hackers are just taking advantage of Carrie's fame. She is the only country artist on the list due to her immense popularity.

    Must be because alot of people google Carrie and search for Carrie related news, music, etc I know I do and I have had my computer get a virus on more than one occasion because of it but it still hasn't stopped me from searching for Carrie stuff. The things we do and endure for Carrie
