Alexis Bledel is well known for her starring role on Gilmore Girls and her supporting role on The Handmaid's Tale, so plenty of people are googling her daily, but they are all putting themselves in danger by doing it. Cybersecurity firm McAfee named the actress 2019's Most Dangerous Celebrity when it comes to online searches because more than anyone else, results for Alexis lead users to websites that carry viruses or malware.
It's not only Bledel that cybercriminals targeted last year, Late Show host James Corden, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, Anna Kendrick, Lupita Nyong'o, Jimmy Fallon, Jackie Chan, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj are all considered dangerous.
McAfee wants everyone to be more careful this year. A rep for the firm said, "Criminals use deceptive websites to dupe unsuspecting consumers into accessing malicious files or content. It is essential that consumers learn to protect their digital lives from lurking cybercriminals by thinking twice before they click on suspicious links or download content."
