  • Why Googling singer Craig David could get you into trouble

An anti-virus company has ranked Avril Lavigne the most unsafe celebrity to search for online in 2017.

The study reports which "celebrities generate the riskiest search results that could potentially expose their fans to malicious websites", according to a press release from McAfee.

It's thought cybercriminals create links at the top of popular searches to send users to pages that can install malware or steal personal information.

Fellow singers Emeli Sande, Liam Payne, Adele and Ed Sheeran completed the top five.

The survey is meant to highlight the danger of clicking on suspicious links.

McAfee's Nick Viney said: "Having the latest hit albums, videos and movies available on our connected devices immediately is a tempting proposition".

"However, consumers need to be aware of the cybersecurity risks of clicking on links that promise the latest content from celebrities, particularly when they're offering it for free".

More than one in 10 search results claiming to offer free content from Craig David across Google, Bing and Yahoo! lead to malicious websites.

The research, which analysed results from Google, Bing and Yahoo, also found that searching for "free MP3" along with a celebrity name returned the highest number of risky website results.

This year's list also includes Carly Rae Jepsen, Zayn Malik, Celine Dion, Calvin Harris and Justin Bieber.
