Anyone that has spent more than 3 seconds searching the Web
would have realised that there is a lot of bad stuff out there, and by this I
mean more than crappy websites and dubious information sources.
It appears that a lot of really bad stuff, including
viruses, malware, spyware and other horridware is being snucked into articles
and images featuring various celebrities. According to this report from McAfee http://newsroom.mcafee.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=3554, websites hosting celebrity photos and gossip are strewn with malicious code
waiting to catch out the innocent browser.
So who is the most popular celeb that is being targeted to
act as a malware host? Apparently someone called Jessica Biel.
Nope, I have no idea either.
For those with more home grown interests apparently Katie
Price, AKA Jordan, is the UK’s biggest malware target.
Can’t think why.
Anyway, check out the report and see if you have more luck
in identifying the malware toting celebs.
