While we typically wouldn't weigh in on what you do with your free Interwebs time, allow us to suggest that you should avoid searching for nude photos of Emma Watson.
According to an annual study conducted by security technology company McAfee, scouring the Web for sans-clothing photos of Hermione Granger, among some other search terms, is risky business.
Watson, who starred in the "Harry Potter" movies as Hermione for a decade, is this year's most dangerous celebrity to search for, McAfee reports.
Using the terms “Emma Watson and free downloads,” “Emma Watson and nude pictures,” “Emma Watson and fakes" or “Emma Watson and busted” could lead to websites set up to steal passwords and other personal information, or sites that contain downloads that'll also deposit malware.
According to its research, McAfee found that those Watson searches yielded a greater than 12.6 percent chance of leading to a website that contains online threats.
Searching for photos or downloads relating to Jessica Biel is just as risky, as Justin Timberlake's fiancee is No. 2 on McAfee's "dangerous celebrities" list.
Women are riskier searches than men, with the top 10 "most dangerous" consisting entirely of women. The one guy who did make it into the top 20 was Jimmy Kimmel.
Following Biel, the third most dangerous star to search for is Eva Mendes; the fourth most dangerous being Selena Gomez; and the fifth most dangerous being Halle Berry.
You might also want to think twice about clicking on links regarding Megan Fox (No. 6); Shakira (No. 7); Cameron Diaz (No. 8); Salma Hayek (No. 9); and Sofia Vergara (No. 10).
Thankfully, we're considering it OK to now search for photos or downloads of Piers Morgan or Brad Pitt, who've both fallen off McAfee's "Most Dangerous Celebrities" list. Hunt away!

Really? She's not even hot! Barely even cute...I see a bunch of girls every day who are much prettier than her.
This is how the CIA introduced the Stuxnet virus to Iran. Iranian nuclear engineers are huge Harry Potter fans.
Who the heck is Emma Watson? I thought she was that lady in Nanny MacPhee. Why'd I want to look for pics of that?
Grandma, please get off my internet
I think our new military campaign should be to bomb scammers/hackers.
CUTE? She's the hottest girl I've ever seen. OOLALA
I love you Emma waston.
Can't help it, she is a true goddess of love.
It wouldn't be the only virus you catch from her, or so I hear.

"the world best actress so bad does to good 1 so emma b care dont catch on camera too much"
What the heck did you just say??
That's OK, I'm on to Kate Middleton now anyway!
Who would want to see naked pictures of that makeup-slathered horsebeast?
Got issues, huh?
Yea I know. Piers Morgan is totally repulsive.
If McAfee is so concerned about malware then why don't they post the pics on their web site. :)
she's looks adorable...that's the way young women should look....bright, sweet. the red lips look great...she probably didn't have a date that day...lolol
I can fire one off looking at her with or without clothes so its all good for me. That hot little broad is definitely the mother of millions of knuckle-children
Don't date much, huh?
Bright red lip stick on pale women -- attractive?
Men, does anyone like to kiss lipstick?
Now that Ms Watson is 22, I feel that for the sake of safety on the Internets Tubes, Ms Watson should simply post nude pictures of herself on her website so that her fans can surf with safety.
The hard part is telling which images are photo-shopped
That's not the hard part.
Yeah those of us who know how to not get a virus are fine. Which is pretty damn easy with a decent virus scanner.. Mcafee not being one of them.
you don't need a corporation to figure out am idiot...it walks you right it.
Those are English words but I do not think you are using them properly.
i dont have to worry about being perfect on a stupid blog
HOW did they know I was looking? That's what I want to Know!
there is no regulation of the internet, they(corporations) can get in your computer and see what you're looking at with no consequences
IT WASN'T ME!!! I swear it. I was at a poker game somewhere else in another state with friends who can possibly verify it...maybe. And, I had the flu and I was delirious. I also broke both hands that day playing tennis.
great example of how young women should look-sweet young kid.
I THINK THAT THEY ARE A GOOD IDEA AND SURE BE ADDED TO MY TEAM
Just use Firefox and you can browse all day for nude pics of her. And seriously, whats the fascination> She has no body. Dont get me wrong, I wouldnt kick her out of bed but she's definitely not hot.
SERIOUSLY!!! You want to find some hot pics? Search for old photos of Christy Canyon.
Christy Canyon? Really??
Oh, just can't stay away from that Pixie cut, baby. Mother of God...
emma is a shopper thats for sure!
First there was the bubonic plague, aids, n1h1 and now a Emma Watson carries a 'technology' virus. She's worth the risk.
bad mood today?
emma is a natural beauty and never a slob. She embraces her beauty and has a greate personality
FUK U BICH-HEAD. SHES UGLY
she has the most darling wardrobe and she just loves to shop...
we love high heels - i'll wear them forever...
she is a georgous woman, talented, has everything going for her...she's not some miserable pig.
the higher the heels and the redder the lipstick the better...
getting dress for a man–Emma is a prime example to young women and how they should not like not like the pigs
that walk around in the street.
wash up, get dressed and look act like a female not a butch
can't change a drunk can you.
emma is beautiful inside and out...something you will never ever have your entire life....try some blush
In the interest of cyber security, Emma needs to take one for the team and proliferate genuine naked pictures across the web to put a stop to this treachery. Preserve your good looks, inclad, for all times, darling Emma, and put an end to this trickey!
YO WUTS GOOD?
IM 26 YEARS OLD JUST MOVED OUTA MY PARENTS FOR A LIL VACATION TIME HOPE TO ENJOY THE WEATHER
Risky that is if you are using an Android device. Ha ha ha haaaa..... Swish!!
Hungry people are always angry, i've proven it through personal experience. A man with an empty stomach and a tight shoe is at risk of being very angry. I guess he will have something to eat meantime in the cell.
when you can't take it .. let me know.
