Researchers at computer safety company Intel Security found Internet searches for Amy were most likely to connect to sites containing crippling malware and viruses.
A search for the Trainwreck star’s name carries a 16 per cent chance of connecting an Internet user to a malicious site, according to the research.
Behind her on the list in second place was Justin Bieber, with TV host Carson Daly in third and Will Smith and Rihanna rounding out the top five. Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Kesha were included in the top 10 most dangerous celebrity names to search.
Amy replaces Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren, who topped the list last year (15)
