Stop looking for naked photos of Emma Watson, or else

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!

    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.

    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.
