Katrina Kaif may be the most-googled Indian star but chances are that searching for her on the internet can infect your computer with a virus. Downloading screensavers and wallpapers of the Bollywood star can be detrimental to one's computer.
 


According to a report by "The Webs Most Dangerous Search Terms" released by computer security provider McAfee Inc., the sexy Bollywood actress is one of the most dangerous online search words in India and queries related to her name can come up with results linking to malicious software and online scams.


According to the report, the search word Katrina Kaif has a maximum risk percentage of 28.6 (where 'maximum risk' refers to the maximum percentage of risky sites a user might encounter on a single page of search results).  This is a shade below 'Wapstick,' a popular website for free downloads of music, ring tones, wall paper, animations and logos for mobile phones.


It may sound bizarre but the logic is simple. Cyber criminals make websites based on most used search terms and offer free download of content to lure the web user. The content in turn has a malicious code attached to it which has the ability to destroy stored data on your PC.


Now Katrina finds it funny and says " The virus bit is kind of funny. But the Internet popularity is something which is really special to me. It means your fans and people who like you are thinking about you".


Other popular keywords posing high-risk rate in India include Orkut, Yahoomail, Shahid Kapur, Rediffmail, 'How to earn money', Southern Sensation-Namitha , Shimla and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
