If you're looking up the latest on Kim Kardashian-West's drama with her sisters or her response to Kanye West's Twitter rants then beware.

The "Orange Is the New Black" star has been crowned the "most risky celebrity" to search online in 2018, according to security firm McAfee.

McAfee's study examines which celebrity searches turn up the most results with links to malicious website and malware. Adele was the highest ranked musician at number 21 followed by Shakira (number 27), 2017's top celebrity Avril Lavigne (number 30), Lady Gaga (number 35), Kehlani (number 47), Britney Spears (number 57), Ed Sheeran (number 74) and Diddy, who finished at number 9 in 2017, fell to number 76.

While Kardashian topped the list for the United Kingdom - replacing singer Craig David - the top 10 also featured actress Rose Byrne, supermodel Naomi Campbell, Kim's sister Kourtney Kardashian, Adele, Love Island host Caroline Flack, Britney Spears, actress Emma Roberts and reality TV star Ferne McCann.

Other celebs thought to be unsafe search terms in the United Kingdom are Love Island victor Kem Cetinay, Britney Spears and TOWIE's Ferne McCann.

Cyber security company McAfee said reality television star Kristin Cavallari came in second place, while actresses Marion Cotillard, Lynda Carter and Rose Byrne were also among the top five celebrities whose name searches can lead fans to click on suspicious links.

McAfee's chief scientist Raj Samani said it's down to the "fast-paced world that's heavily influenced by pop culture and social media".

"It's important for consumers to think before they click to be sure that they are landing on safe digital content and protecting themselves from cybersecurity threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity", Davis said.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was closely followed by Naomi Campbell and her older sis Kourtney Kardashian was the third most unsafe to stalk, er, we mean search.

People are also advised to keep their anti-virus software up to date.
