McAfee's 'Most Sensational Celebrity' survey claims Indian actor Ileana D' Cruz is a big sensation, breaking Kapil Sharma's record on the platform.
The survey claims that the actresses' name has been used by hackers to entice her fans to adult sites. Previously celebrities have been victims of traps for such cases since long. These celebs have a monumental impact on fans and thus are vulnerable to such issues.
Venkat Krishnapur, Vice-President of Engineering and Managing Director, McAfee said, "In today's era, the entertainment industry and celebrities are bigger than ever before. Loyal fans feel the dire need to stay updated on industry news and gossip at all times. Ease of access through a range of connected devices has made it increasingly feasible for followers to avail instant news and information on their favourite stars", he further added, "While fans religiously track their icons, online security is often compromised over speed and convenience. Cybercriminals leverage this opportunity to lure unsuspicious users by directing them to malicious links that could be used to infect devices or steal identities."
"As a precaution, consumers need to think before they click and avoid suspicious links that promise free content featuring favourite celebrities, movies, TV shows or pictures to protect themselves from cyber fraud."
The list also includes names of Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Tabu, Preity Zinta, Akshay Kumar, Rishi Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Parineeti Chopra and Govinda.
