McAfee Report: How Scammers Use Famous Names to Spread Malware

According to a recent report by McAfee, popular personalities are often targeted by scammers to trick people into downloading malware or visiting insecure websites. The report reveals that Canadian actor Ryan Gosling is the most frequently exploited name, followed by Elon Musk. McAfee aims to raise awareness about online security risks and shed light on the notable individuals misused by cybercriminals.

Even months later, Ryan Gosling remains a popular target for scammers, partly due to his role as Ken in a movie, which helped him reach the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Interestingly, Ken and Barbie costumes have become the most sought-after Halloween outfits in 2023, further increasing the actor’s online visibility.
