Another popular malware favorite was British presenter James Corden, followed by Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, actresses Anna Kendrick and Lupita Nyong'o, presenter Jimmy Fallon, actress and martial artist Jackie Chan, American rapper Lil Wayne and Tessa Thompson, known for Marvel films.
The purpose of the McAfee study was to re-disseminate information that it is wiser not to open suspicious links on the web. Often, malware distributors associate a viral link with a picture of some celebrity, hoping that their fans will actively click on it (which, to some extent, absolutely succeeds) and share their personal information in the hope of new information. McAfee encourages internet users to be aware of the dangers of viewing or consuming content from unofficial sources. The company also urges you to keep all your antivirus programs active.
Every year, there are different stars, depending on the celebrity that the creators of the malware pages associate with these pages, so be careful when looking for pictures or creations of the hottest names on pirated pages. Last year's McAfee study which has been conducted for 13 years was dominated by Ruby Rose, who played a major role in the US television series Batwoman, which premiered in early 2019.
