Emma Watson Named the Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity of 2012

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Normally, Emma Watson isn't considered to be a dangerous woman, but she poses a real threat on the Internet.

The security technology company McAfee has named the 22-year-old Harry Potter actress the "most dangerous celebrity" of 2012, based on the number of risky websites that pop up when searching her name.

McAfee warns that searching for Emma Watson pictures and downloads yields more than a 12.6-percent chance of landing on a website that contains spyware, adware, viruses or other threats.

Jessica Biel ranks second on the company's list, followed by Eva Mendes, Selena Gomez, Halle Berry, Megan Fox, Shakira, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek and Sofia Vergara.

As you may have noticed, the top 10 is dominated by women. In fact, the only male celebrity in the top 20 is ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

Last year's most dangerous celebrity was Heidi Klum.
