Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong’o has been listed among the top 10 dangerous celebrities on the internet this year.
According to an annual report released by the cybersecurity firm McAfee on Tuesday, Lupita is the fifth most dangerous celebrity to search on the internet.
Actress Alexis Bledel topped the list. She featured in Gilmore Girls and Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.
This means that searching for Bledel or Lupita Nyong’o was likely to land you on a website laced with malware or viruses.
Coming after Bledel is James Corden who hosts the ‘Late Late Show”. He is followed by Sophie Turner from “Game of Thrones.”
Actress Anna Kendrick came fourth followed by Kenya’s Lupita Nyong’o.
Other dangerous celebrities include Talk Show host Jimmy Fallon, Actor Jackie Chan, Rappers Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and actress Tessa Thompson.
The annual survey by McAfee is aimed at sensitizing the public on the danger of clicking on suspicious links.
Criminals capitalize on celebrities to dupe unsuspecting consumers into accessing dangerous links or malicious content.
Thus consumers are warned against clicking suspicious content or downloading content whose source they are oblivious of.
The survey also indicated that interest in reality stars has declined as Kristen Cavallari and Kourtney Kardashian who were ranked among the top ten last year dropped to 214 and 222 respectively.
