McAfee (via Network World) just updated its “malware bait list” and Cameron Diaz came in number one.

Most anti-malware vendors, including McAfee offer a service to flag risky sites in search results that appear right in the search results, thus helping you avoid malware-laden web pages.

This is just another example of the “inside-out” attack style which, while rather random, is still a major risk considering that the bad guys watch for popular search terms and build sites to bait people.
