My Advice: Just don’t do it.

A new report from McAfee finds that celebrity-themed Web searches have a 20 percent chance of landing at a bogus site that’s used as a clearinghouse for spyware, adware, spam, viruses, or other vulnerabilities.

“One lesson of this report is that there’s no reason users should be searching for Jessica Biel in an enterprise setting. It isn’t simply a question of lost or squandered productivity, McAfee officials stress; it’s an issue of IT having taking common sense steps to restrict a user’s ability to introduce problems. If users are successfully initiating Jessica Biel-themed searches, IT hasn’t done its job.” Stephen Swoyer -Enterprise Systems
