Brad Pitt, Kate Winslet and 'Frost Nixon' are among the most malicious searched terms as the Oscars

Searching for this year's Oscar nominees can lead to malicious sites.

 

McAfee has claimed that ‘Frost Nixon' is the most dangerous movie to search for while Brad Pitt is the most dangerous actor and Kate Winslet the most dangerous actress.

 

The company claimed that cybercriminals are using Oscar nominees, and their images, to lure internet surfers to ‘fake' websites that look legitimate.

 

A search for Kate Winslet gives a 20 per cent chance of visiting a risky site and possibly having their PCs threatened by spyware, spam, phishing, adware, viruses and other malware, according to McAfee.
