Don’t Google Cameron Diaz. But if you do, watch out.

Research from computer-security software company McAfee, Inc. reveals that the movie star tops the latest list of the most dangerous celebrities to search online. Search for Cameron, and you have a 19 percent chance of landing on a bad site, infected with spyware, viruses or other dangers.

McAfee’s annual list is compiled by using its free software SiteAdvisor, which alerts users about a site’s potential risk. The company performed its tests in July.

See a list of the top 10 riskiest celebs to search below.

  1. Cameron Diaz
  2. Julia Roberts
  3. Jessica Biel
  4. Gisele Bundchen
  5. Brad Pitt
  6. Adriana Lima
  7. Jennifer Love Hewitt, Nicole Kidman
  8. Tom Cruise
  9. Heidi Klum, Penelope Cruz
  10. Anna Paquin

Soccer star David Beckham ranked 29th, Tiger Woods was 33rd. President Obama came in at 49 and Sarah Palin followed at 50.

Last year, Jessica Biel topped the list.
