Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is popular online but he’s also quite dangerous when it comes to his name being attached to malware and computer viruses.

TechVibes.com reports that computer protection company McAfee released its Most Dangerous Celebrities study. The study examines the risk a famous celebrity’s name leads to “malicious sites” and discovered Bieber is the Most Dangerous Canadian with 13.06 per cent.

Bieber edges out EDM artist Deadmau5 by less than one percent (12.13 per cent). In third is actress Ellen Page with 11.53 per cent. Other musicians on the list include Avril Lavigne (first in the previous year’s Canadian list) who is fourth at 11.11 per cent and Drake who is seventh with 8.89 per cent.

Bieber was also the lone Canadian to crack the Top 50 list internationally with Jimmy Kimmel’s name topping that particular list. The late night talk show host’s name had a 19.38 per cent of linking to a malicious site. Other names making the Top 10 include Blake Shelton and Bruce Springsteen.
