WARNING: Venus Williams heads up the Most dangerous athletes

Cybercriminals often use the names of famous people to lure people to sites that are actually full of malicious software designed to compromise personal details and disrupt devices. Anyone looking for the latest videos or information about their favourite athlete could end up with a malware-ridden computer instead of the sports content they’re looking for.

According to internet security company McAfee, which has investigated this summer’s sporting stars to reveal which competitors are the riskiest online:

Most Dangerous Athletes

McAfee research found that searching for the latest Andy Murray content yields more likelihood of landing on a website that has tested positive for online threats, such as spyware, adware, spam, phishing, viruses and other malware than searching for any other British athlete.

There are tools like McAfee SiteAdvisor software, a free tool that provides ratings to indicate which sites are risky to search for on the web, calculating an overall risk percentage for each athlete.
