This also includes the social media pages of celebrities that have million of followers, and receive thousands of likes and comments from fans daily. However, recently Amy Schumer, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and Miley Cyrus are some of the celebrities that generate the most dangerous search results that could expose fans to viruses and malware according to a study by McAfee.

David Freer, McAfee’s Vice President Consumer Asia Pacific explains.
