Forget the Oscars: Computer security company McAfee has released its fifth annual top ten list of worst celebrities to search for if you want to hold on to your social security number.

The ranking of the most dangerous celebrities to search for is determined by which celebrity image search is most likely to land the searcher on a website that contains spyware, malware, adware, spam, or viruses. Top finishers range from the obvious -- models and people who have graced the cover of Maxim -- to the less obvious -- a certain forty-something British news anchor. According to the McAfee report, “Hot movies and TV shows, awards and industry accolades seem to be more of a factor than headline-grabbing activity,” which is one reason you're more likely to see Mila Kunis than Charlie Sheen.

Pitt's performance on the McAfee list of most dangerous celebrities to search has been notoriously hard to predict. He came out strong in 2008, finishing in first place, only to fall to last place the following year. In 2010 he managed to fight his way to a respectable 5th place ranking, but came in dead last, again, this year. Cyber-criminals just can't seem to make up their minds on whether we like searching for him or not. Or it might just be that everyone's still reeling from last year's Fu Manchu.
