McAfee Labs has carried out a study of the names which could take you to a dangerous place, and Gosling is high on the list alongside Emily Blunt and Jennifer Lopez.

Steve Grobma, McAfee's Chief Technology Officer, said: "In today's culture, where celebrity news and entertainment are part of many people's daily lives, people are putting speed and convenience over their own online protection by clicking on pop ups and other suspicious links that promise celebrity-filled content.

"We also know people are seeking out free content, such as movie downloads, which puts them at risk.

"If it sounds too good to be true, it deserves a closer look."

He added: "AI has changed the game, and cybercriminals can now create very sophisticated scams at scale using the latest AI tools, and what better hook for them than celebrity news and information.

"To keep people safe online and help protect their privacy and identity, consumers need to stay vigilant and think twice before clicking."

Luckily there are some steps you can take to help keep yourself safe online.

Firstly, be careful what you click on. It might sound obvious, but clicking on a dodgy link is probably a bad idea.

Secondly, don't stream illegally. In addition to being against the law it also puts your computer at risk.
