When you're searching online for the latest celebrity dish, free music downloads or red carpet photos, you might get more than you bargained for -- like a computer virus.
Hackers capitalize on fans' fervor for their favorite celebrities by peppering search results with links to sites that serve up malicious software that can infect devices and steal personal data. Intel Security's 2015 Most Dangerous Celebrities list puts EDM (electronic dance music) D.J. Armin van Buuren at the top of the cyber-crime charts.

2. Luke Bryan
Luke Bryan, shown here accepting the award for Entertainer of the Year during the 50th Academy of Country Music Awards on April 19, 2015, takes the second spot on the list. Musicians are ripe targets for cyberattackers because people searching their names are often looking for free songs, which they're willing to download from less than reputable sites.
Bad guys often use the terms "free mp3," "HD download" or "torrent" to entice people to download a seemingly-legitimate file that is, in reality, malicious, according to Intel consumer security specialist Gary Davis.

Jay-Z is seen here performing on May 17, 2015 in New York City in a concert promoting his Tidal streaming service, launched earlier this year.
People searching for Jay-Z downloads online probably aren't among the 1,000,000 shelling out $10 or $20 a month for Tidal subscriptions. And you get what you pay for: Jay-Z searches carry a nearly 16 percent chance of cyber badness.

7. Amy Schumer
Amy Schumer has had a great year. But with fame come complications. The comedian took on the issue of gun control after a gunman killed two people and wounded nine others in a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana during a July showing of her film "Trainwreck."
In a different kind of danger, almost 15 percent of search results for her name serve up malicious content of some sort.

10. Nina Dobrev
Nina Dobrev attends the Teen Choice Awards 2015 at the USC Galen Center on August 16, 2015 in Los Angeles, California.
The actress announced this spring that she would leave her CW show "The Vampire Diaries" -- in which she has starred since 2009 alongside Intel dangerous celebrity #18 Paul Wesley -- after its 6th season. You could Google her to find out the backstory, but you'd have a better than 13 percent chance of clicking on a malicious link. (Better just to read it here on CBS News.)
