Armin van Buuren is the most likely celebrity to give your computer a virus

If Armin van Buuren's at the top of your Google search list, you better make sure your computer security is up-to-date.

Search the Dutch DJ and producer's name and there's an 17.92 per cent chance you'll end up on a page containing viruses and other potential threats such as malware, according to the Intel Security.

Strangely, he tops the list of potentially dangerous celebrity search terms, with the top 10 including Usher, Jay Z, Disclosure collaborator Lorde and Katy Perry. Down in 16th place is Kanye West, while Afrojack sits in 19th.

According to the Guardian, "celebrities are a threat to online security because cybercriminals seek to take advantage of public interest in pop culture events, setting up pages that will enable them to steal private data".

Maybe his place at the summit of the table has something to do with him turning the Game of Thrones theme tune into a trance banger. He's taken it well, though, as you can see below.
