List Of The Most Dangerous Australian Women Celebrities

With the number of recent high-profile cyber attacks on Australian businesses, online services, apps and even global tennis stars such as Rafael Nadal’s leaked medical records earlier this month, the news comes at a topical time and serves as a reminder to Australians to be very careful about what/who they search and click for online.

Aussie female trio, Rebel Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Delta Goodrem have been named by the 10th annual McAfee Most Dangerous Celebrities study as the riskiest Australian names to search for online. Web searches on these celebrities result in the greatest potential for online threats, such as ransomware, spyware, adware, spam and other malware.

This year, Rebel Wilson famously hit the headlines when she sued several women’s lifestyle magazines for allegedly lying about her age, name, and background, undoubtedly leading to increased searches in her name. Adding to this, the actress’s role in Valentine’s Day blockbuster How to Be Single and cameo appearance in cult comedy Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie have also contributed to her number one ranking. Further, Wilson’s often-controversial jokes and recent weight loss transformation attracted a great deal of public attention.

Tying in second place, Rose Byrne and Delta Goodrem followed next, both with a 10% risk. Fresh from two Hollywood blockbusters X-Men: Apocalypse and Bad Neighbours 2, it’s no surprise that Rose Byrne has climbed to the number two spot. News around her move to the theatre and return to Australia to film classic children’s tale Peter Rabbit has increased a number of online searches in her name. The birth of her first child Rocco earlier in the year also caught the attention of the public, as did her post-baby body.

It has also been a big year for Delta Goodrem with the release of a new no.1 album Wings of the Wild, her return to the judging panel for hit reality TV series The Voice and the announcement of her new role in Australian drama House Husbands. Her recent blossoming romance with rugby union star Drew Mitchell has also seen her rise to the top of another kind of list: the hottest Wives and Girlfriends (WAGs) of the Australian Ruby Union team, The Wallabies.
