In case you wanted to know why Lavigne is so lethal, it's down to the conspiracy theory that Lavigne died ten years ago and was been replaced by an imposter. Just your standard Google search, really. That, and the fact she is due to be releasing new music after four years which has caused a spike in searches.

Cybercriminals prey on consumers' celebrity obsessions so it's no surprise that the top 10 are well-known names from the entertainment industry. However, it turns out that the top 10 are all musicians, although Lavigne is the first female musician to top the list - in case you were curious.

Apparently searching for music is more likely to lead you to "uncertain areas of the internet", this is down to streaming or torrenting music online. Not that any of you have done that, ever.

The full roll call is below.

  1. Avril Lavigne
  2. Bruno Mars
  3. Carly Rae Jepsen
  4. Zayn Malik
  5. Celine Dion
  6. Calvin Harris
  7. Justin Bieber

  9. Katy Perry
  10. Beyonce

Just don't go Googling Bieber anytime soon and you should stay safe online.
