Jimmy Kimmel Is McAfee’s ‘Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity’ 2014
McAfee's "Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity" for 2014 was revealed and in the number one spot was late night comedian, Jimmy Kimmel.
Jimmy Kimmel confirmed that he made the number one spot as McAfee’s “Most Dangerous Cyber Celebrity” on his nightly show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and was perfectly fine with the idea of being the most dangerous man in the world.
Kimmel joked about it saying, “The only other male celebrity to wind up number one was Brad Pitt in 2008, so it’s just one more thing Brad Pitt and I have in common. The price of being sexy, I guess”.

McAfee’s Gary Davis has stated, “Most consumers are completely unaware of the security risks that exist when searching for celebrity and entertainment news, images and videos online, sacrificing safety for immediacy”.
