Phishing: reading celebrity gossip

Are you interested in searching for celebrities on the web? How about when you want to read on celebrity gossip? It does not matter whether you read this in your free time, sneakily during work hours or use the "Privacy Mode" in modern browsers behind closed doors late at night. The issue is the growing danger of cyber criminals out there to get you and your money.

I am referring to new scary information from Jeff Green, Senior Vice president of McAfee's Product Development & Avert Labs. You can read it here.

"Cybercriminals employ numerous methods, yet one of the simplest but most effective ways is to trick consumers into infecting themselves by capitalizing on Americans' interest in celebrity gossip"

Who are the celebrities to watch out for? Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Heidi Montag, Mariah Carey, Rihanna and Fergie, Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Cameron Diaz, George Clooney, David Beckha, Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan, Katherine Heigl and every other celebrity on the planet. :)
