Hackers love Ryan Gosling. In fact, hackers use his name as bait more than any other celebrity. 

With that, the celebrated star of “Barbie” and umpteen other hit films tops our Hacker Celebrity Hot List for 2023. It’s our annual study that reveals which big-name celebrity searches most often link to malware and risky sites. And this year, we’ve evolved the list. It now includes celebs spotted in deepfake and other AI-driven content. 

With Gosling’s high profile this year, it comes as little surprise that he ranked so highly. As we reported earlier this year, “Barbie” was a huge hit for cybercriminals as well. They baited consumers with a rash of ticket scams, download scams, and other attacks that capitalized on the summer hit’s hype.  

Who made the Hacker Celebrity Hot List? 

Months later, searches for Gosling remain high. His portrayal of Ken has scored him a first-ever Billboard Hot 100 song with “I’m Just Ken.” Meanwhile, Ken and Barbie outfits rank among the most popular Halloween costumes for 2023. 

And if you’re wondering, Margot Robbie, who starred as Barbie to Gosling’s Ken, ranked number eight on our list. The full top ten breaks down as follows: 

  1. Ryan Gosling, Golden Globe winner and multiple Academy Award nominee.  
  2. Emily Blunt, critically acclaimed actor and star of this summer’s hit film, Oppenheimer. 
  3. Jennifer Lopez, pop culture icon, critically acclaimed singer, actor, and producer. 
  4. Zendaya, critically acclaimed actor and singer.  
  5. Kevin Costner, Academy Award-winning actor and director, and current star of the hit series, Yellowstone. 
  6. Elon Musk, business magnate and tech entrepreneur.  
  7. Al Roker, the “Today” show’s popular meteorologist, author, and journalist.  
  8. Margot Robbie, actor, producer, and multiple Academy Award and BAFTA award nominee, and the star of this summer’s hit film, Barbie. 
  9. Bad Bunny, multi-platinum album singer, and the first non-English-language singer to be named as Spotify’s most streamed artist of the year.  
  10. America Ferrera, actor and noted supporting star of this summer’s hit film, Barbie. 

What’s at risk when you search for these celebrities. 

The hackers behind these celebrity-driven attacks are after two primary things.  

  • They want you to hand over personal info so they can use it to commit identity fraud and theft. 
  • They want to infect your device with malware. That might include spyware that can steal personal info or ransomware that holds your device and its files hostage—for a price. 

Accordingly, they’ll pair celebrity names with terms like audio book, lyrics, deepfake, free ringtone, free movie, free download, MP4, among others—which generate results that lead to sketchy sites. 

In all, they target people who want to download something or get a hold of celebrity-related content in some form. Again, think of the “Barbie” movie scams earlier this year that promoted free downloads of the movie — but of course they were malware and identity theft scams. 

Searching for a celebrity name alone didn’t necessarily lead to a list of sketchy results. Our own Chief Technology Officer, Steve Grobman, described the risks well. “We know people are seeking out free content, such as movie downloads, which puts them at risk. If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is and deserves a closer look.” Yet hackers know how hungry people are for celebrity content, and unfortunately some people will go ahead and click those links that promise celebrity-filled content, despite the risks. 

Who else made the Hacker Celebrity Hot List? 

Further rounding out the list, we found several big names from sports and popular culture. 

Argentine soccer player Lionel Messi comes in at number 18 on the list, who recently made the move to Miami’s Major League Soccer team. Recent retiree and all-time American football great Tom Brady clocked in at number 19, and Travis Kelce, American football tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, came in at number 22. NBA star Steph Curry at number 23, while Aaron Rogers, another American football legend, came in at number 31. And Serena Williams, a dominant force on the court and in culture, ranked at number 32.  

Reality and pop culture favorites also made the top 50, with Andy Cohen of “Real Housewives” fame taking the number 11 slot, followed by Kim Kardashian at number 24, and Tom Sandoval at number 40 on the list. 

And for the Swifties out there, Taylor Swift ranked 25 on our list this year. 

Also making the list — AI scams. 

Thanks to readily available AI tools, cybercriminals have increased both the sophistication and volume of their attacks. It’s no different for these celebrity-based attacks. 

According to McAfee researchers, one such AI-driven trend is on the rise: deepfakes. For example, Elon Musk. He hit number six on our list, and our researchers found a significant volume of malicious deepfake content tied to his name — often linked with cryptocurrency scams.   

Taking a sample set of the top 50 list, McAfee researchers discovered between 25 to 135 deepfake URLs per celebrity search. While there are instances of malicious deepfakes, many celebrity deepfakes fall into recreational or false advertising use cases right now. However, there is growing evidence that future deepfakes could turn deceptive — deliberately passing along disinformation in a public figure’s name. 

Staying safe while searching for celebs — and in general. 

You have every reason, and every right, to search for and enjoy your celebrity content safely. A mix of a sharp eye and online protection can keep you safe out there. 

  • Go with outlets and websites you can trust. When it comes time to get your celebrity news, look for names you know. Reliable sources that have been around. The reality is that it’s not tough for hackers and scammers to quickly spin up their own (completely bogus) “celebrity news” sites. In fact, it’s rather easy, thanks in part to AI that can generate phony articles that otherwise look real.  
  • Stick with legitimate streaming and download services. Whether you want to spin something from Taylor Swift’s latest album (Taylor’s version, of course) or stream movies from your favorite stars, use known and legitimate services. Yes, sometimes that means paying. Or putting up with a few ads. The illegal alternatives might be riddled with malware or ask for personal info that ends up right in the hands of hackers. 
  • Don’t “log in” or provide other info. If you receive a message, text, or email, or visit a third-party website that asks for info like your credit card, email, home address, or other login info, don’t give it out. Particularly if there’s a promise for “exclusive” content. Such requests are a common tactic for phishing that could lead to identity theft. 
  • Tell what’s real and what’s fake with online protection software. Comprehensive online protection software can keep celebrity scams and other scams like them at bay. First, our new McAfee Scam Protection uses smart AI to detect and warn you of scam texts and links sent your way, so you can tell what’s real and what’s fake. Second, web protection looks out for you while you search—identifying malicious links and even blocking them if you still click one by accident. Together, this is part of the full device, identity, and privacy protection you get with us. 

Whether it’s Ryan, J-Lo, or Bad Bunny – you can stay safe when you search. 

Hackers and scammers love riding the coattails of celebrities. By hijacking big names like Ryan, J-Lo, and Bad Bunny, they dupe plenty of well-meaning fans into downloading malware or handing over their personal info. 

Of course, that’s no reason to stop searching for those celebs. Not at all. Go ahead and enjoy your shows, music, and movies—and all the news, gossip, and tea surrounding them. That’s all part of the fun. Just do it with a sharp eye and the proper protection that has your back.

Identity theft protection and privacy for your digital life

#McAfee #Hacker #Celebrity #Hot #List #Hackers #Love #Ryan #Gosling

Most of us believe hacking to be an event that happens to ‘the other person,’ often refusing to accept that it could very much be a reality for us as well. While hacking and social engineering might seem like concepts only prevalent in big-screen thrillers, the truth is they occur more frequently than we’d like to admit. Your email address, innocuous as it may seem, is often one of the gateways into your digital persona. This article aims to shed light on the potential dangers and impacts of giving away your email address to the wrong people.

To offer a real-life perspective, we’ll follow a conversation with an ethical hacker called ‘Oz.’ Ethical hackers, or ‘white hat’ hackers, are those who use their hacking skills to uncover security vulnerabilities and help implement protective measures against other malevolent hackers, known as ‘black hat’ hackers. Despite Oz’s assurance that he belongs to the white hat category, the following discourse will reveal how much information a hacker can come across based solely on your email address.

Dig Deeper: Are All Hackers Bad?

Communication with Oz: An Eye-Opener

Initiating communication with Oz took a toll on my nerves, considering the potential threat to my data privacy. For communication, Oz suggested using an email address, prompting me to create a separate email account solely for our conversations. Once the lines of communication were established, I posed my first question: “Suppose we met at a coffee shop, exchanged pleasantries, and all I left you with was my email address. What kind of information could you gather about me?”

An hour later, Oz responded with my work and home phone numbers, home address, birth date, and year. But the real shocker was a casual remark about my meeting with Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, followed by a link to a picture I had no memory of sharing publicly. On clicking the link, I received another email from Oz, stating that he had discovered my preferred internet browser, my operating system, and my IP address, essentially knowing my geographical coordinates. At this point, it became crystal clear just how much information a hacker can unearth based on an email address alone. 

The Importance of Online Safety

The experience with Oz was a stark reminder of the importance of online safety. We often let our guards down, readily providing information and clicking on links without giving it a second thought. However, this is exactly the kind of behavior that hackers rely on for their activities. It is crucial to remember that the internet is a public space, and every piece of information we share can potentially be accessed and misused by malicious parties.

In the next sections of this guide, we’ll delve deeper into the mechanisms hackers use to derive information from an email and the measures you can take to secure your digital identity. The aim is to provide you with practical steps to ensure your online safety and maintain your privacy in the digital world.

The Mechanism Behind The Hacks

When you give out your email address to a hacker, they have a significant amount of information at their fingertips. Understanding the mechanisms that hackers employ to exploit your online presence is essential to appreciate the gravity of the online safety challenge. When a hacker gains access to your email address, they effectively open the door to a wealth of information about you. Let’s find out how this works:

  • Reverse Email Lookup: The first step for a hacker after acquiring your email address is often to perform a ‘reverse email lookup.’ This process involves using your email address to trace any associated social media accounts. Many individuals use the same email address for various online platforms, making it relatively easy for hackers to link your digital footprint across different sites. Once they’ve identified your social media profiles, they can glean valuable insights into your personal life, interests, and potentially even more sensitive information you’ve chosen to share publicly on these platforms.
  • Email-Tracking Apps: Hackers can employ sophisticated email-tracking applications or techniques to gather even more information. These tools are designed to surreptitiously monitor your email interactions. 
  • IP Address Tracking: When you open an email, it often contains hidden elements that reveal your IP address. This information can be used to determine your approximate geographical location. Hackers can gain insights into where you are located, potentially compromising your physical safety or facilitating further cyberattacks.
  • Activity Monitoring: Email-tracking apps can notify the hacker when you open the email, providing them with a timestamp of your activity. This information can be used to deduce when you are most active online, which can be exploited for phishing attacks or other malicious activities.
  • Link Interaction Tracking: By embedding tracking pixels or unique links within emails, hackers can discern which links you click on and even monitor your actions on linked web pages. This level of surveillance allows them to understand your interests, preferences, and potential vulnerabilities. In the case of the Oz experiment, clicking on what appeared to be a harmless link had far-reaching consequences, as the hacker was able to monitor subsequent online behavior, leading to the exposure of additional personal information.

Knowing these tactics highlights the importance of practicing caution and diligence when it comes to email and online interactions. Safeguarding your digital identity requires a combination of awareness, security measures, and privacy-conscious practices. It also underscores the need for robust cybersecurity measures on both individual and organizational levels to protect against these types of intrusive and potentially harmful activities.

Protecting Your Digital Identity

Knowing all this, it is imperative to find ways to protect yourself from such intrusions. In addition to knowing what makes hackers tick, there are several insights and practices you should consider to enhance your online security and privacy:

  • Strong Passwords: Create strong, unique passwords for each of your online accounts. Use a combination of letters, numbers, and special characters. Consider using a reputable password manager to generate and store complex passwords securely.
  • Two-Factor or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Enable 2FA or MFA wherever possible. This adds an extra layer of security by requiring you to provide two or more forms of verification, such as a password and a fingerprint or a one-time code sent to your phone.
  • Regular Updates: Keep your operating system, software, and antivirus programs up to date. Cybersecurity vulnerabilities are often patched in these updates, so failing to update can leave you exposed.
  • Phishing Awareness: Educate yourself about phishing scams. Be wary of emails or messages requesting sensitive information, especially if they urge you to act urgently. Double-check the legitimacy of such requests with the supposed sender through a different channel of communication.

Dig Deeper: How to Spot Phishing Lures

  • Secure Wi-Fi: Ensure your home Wi-Fi network is password-protected and uses strong encryption. Avoid using public Wi-Fi for sensitive activities unless you are using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) for added security.
  • Regular Backups: Back up your important data regularly, and store backups offline or in the cloud. In case of a ransomware attack or data loss, you’ll have a safe copy of your information.
  • Social Engineering Awareness: Be cautious about what you share on social media. Cybercriminals often gather information from social profiles to craft convincing spear-phishing attacks. Limit the personal information you make public.
  • Email Verification: Verify email senders, especially when dealing with financial or sensitive matters. Look out for red flags such as misspellings or suspicious email addresses.
  • Safe Browsing Habits: Avoid visiting dubious websites or downloading files from untrusted sources. Use ad-blockers and ensure that your web browser settings are configured for enhanced privacy and security.
  • Security Software: In addition to antivirus software, consider using anti-malware and anti-spyware programs to bolster your defense against various types of threats. McAfee+ and McAfee Total Protection are your best options if you want to have an all-inclusive software security. 
  • Cybersecurity Education: Stay informed about the latest cybersecurity threats and best practices. Cybersecurity is an evolving field, and awareness is a powerful defense.
  • Incident Response Plan: Develop a plan for responding to security incidents. Know how to disconnect from the internet, contact authorities if necessary, and recover from an attack.

McAfee Pro Tip: For your peace of mind, get McAfee+, which comes with a $2M identity theft coverage and setup assistance, to make a sound incident response plan if your email got hacked and sensitive information got compromised. 

Remember that while it’s essential to take these precautions, no system is completely invulnerable. Cyber threats are continually evolving, so staying vigilant and proactive is crucial to maintaining your online security and privacy.


An email address might seem like a tiny part of your life, but in the wrong hands, it can lead to a significant breach of your privacy. It’s important to remember that the safety measures you take or fail to take can have real-world effects. Therefore, it’s crucial to keep a vigilant eye on your digital persona, how you navigate the World Wide Web, and who has access to your information. The key to internet safety lies within our control – cautious, knowledgeable, and proactive steps to protect your digital identity. At McAfee, we’re always here to remind you that the internet is only as secure as you make it.

  • Sakur kendaraan nganggo chipset Exynos Auto T5123.

Kumaha tetep aman

Cara utama pikeun ngajaga diri anjeun nyaéta ngapdet firmware BRP, anu biasana lumangsung salami apdet firmware pinuh dina smartphone. Salaku conto, Google parantos ngaluarkeun perbaikan bug pikeun Pixel 7 sareng 7 Pro salaku bagian tina pembaruan Maret na. Hanjakalna, Pixel 6 sareng 6 Pro masih rentan dina waktos ngeposkeun. Kami ngarékoméndasikeun nu boga Pixel masang firmware panganyarna ngaliwatan setélan smartphone maranéhanana tanpa reureuh.

Samsung ogé parantos ngaluarkeun pembaruan kode pikeun Exynos BRP, tapi éta henteu acan ngalereskeun sadaya kerentanan. Naon deui, anu ngical paralatan khusus anu ngandung chip ieu kedah mandiri ngarangkep perbaikan ieu kana firmware énggalna. Dina waktos ngeposkeun, firmware pikeun alat anu rentan sanés teu acan sayogi. Éta henteu kedah nyarios yén anjeun kedah pasang apdet ieu pas muncul.

Dugi ka waktos éta, panalungtik Project Zero nyarankeun nganonaktipkeun Voice over LTE (VoLTE) sareng sauran Wi-Fi dina smartphone nganggo Exynos BRP. Ieu tiasa ngirangan kualitas sauran sora sareng ngalambatkeun sambungan sauran, tapi moal aya pangaruhna kana laju sareng kualitas aksés internét. Dugi ka sékrési firmware anyar, éta bakal ngajagaan alat tina kamungkinan hacks, sanaos sababaraha fungsi anu leungit.

How Antivirus Works

When viruses and computer programs first dangerous appear, they still in very shape base. Temporary that, antivirus security is still very base. The first antivirus tool available just no more from just how to scanner work look for pattern from code and match to existing threats. Even when that no required great effort in execute a malicious file from computer, however from understanding of current antivirus this needed business extra for the same thing .

With appearance various new malware variant, for protect personal, business data or system computer government there is need big related technique level continued . Technique level carry on the it means that in tune with good old scan there is addition for could predict, find, delete and protect system from malware. let ‘s go see how understanding of antivirus can explained from activity.

When you open a file, the file possible seen will direct open (depending on ability your device) but actually antivirus system will scan the file more first , with fast look for malware threat that is in the file . If no find similarity with viruses, computer programs dangerous, or shape Other known infections , antivirus system later allow user for could access the file .

·       Heuristics

Function others running side by side with on-access scanning is heuristics . Function this is nice addition for understanding of antivirus and can looking for a possible threatening virus no is known moment it . Function heuristic this try for identify new malware or already modified, which can just seen no dangerous in sight first . Heuristics also monitor activity from various files, and if heuristic see if there is some files try for operate something code for another file system , write the code back , or copy code , heuristic will by direct give sign for the file as malware and will stop files from system operation . Although heuristic impressed as great antivirus features for run on the computer, function this no can set as security level highest , conversely , heuristicK will tagged every new file in system as a threat .

·       Scan System Complete 

Temporary you own on-access and heuristic scanning, scanning system complete possible seen as something function that can ignored . However objective from function this rather a little different with previous function already mentioned above. How to scan system complete this add understanding of antivirus, which is used for check whole system computer for see is no there are malicious files left before install antivirus device. With use kumpulan judi slot scan system by complete once in a while you can ensure that you use update newest inside antivirus system for check device your computer , and updates latest can also find a number of threats that have is inside system computer and not yet detected until you use scan this .
