Los Angeles: Actress Lily Collins has topped this year's list of most dangerous celebrity to search online by McAfee.

The security software company, which conducts studies about the topic annually, had placed 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson on the first position in 2012, reported Ace Showbiz.

The study reveals that searching info about Collins may bring 14.5 per cent chance of landing on malicious sites which enable cyber-criminals to steal passwords as well as private information.

While the risk is about 12.7 for people who type Avril Lavigne, who is at number two position. Typing Sandra Bullock on the web may bring 10.8 per cent risk of landing on sites with malicious content.

"Today's consumers often are completely unaware of security risks when searching for celebrity and entertainment news, images and videos online, sacrificing safety for immediacy," said Paula Greve, the director of web security research at McAfee.

Female celebrities pose higher risk compared to male figures with 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm as the only male star who makes it on the top 10.
