McAfee names Kimmel its 'most dangerous celebrity'

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) If you're about to Google Jimmy Kimmel, beware.

Computer security company McAfee says the talk show host is the most dangerous celebrity to search for online.

The company said Tuesday that a search for Kimmel carries a 19 percent chance of landing on a website that has tested positive for spyware, viruses or malware. The company has used its own site ratings to make the determination for the past eight years.

Other celebrities McAfee deems dangerous this year include Ciara, Flo Rida, Bruce Springsteen, Chelsea Handler and Christina Aguilera.

Kimmel said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tuesday that he can't believe a kid who played the clarinet and carried a briefcase to junior high school grew up to be the most dangerous celebrity of 2014.
