“Criminals use deceptive websites to dupe unsuspecting consumers into accessing malicious files or content. It is essential that consumers learn to protect their digital lives from lurking cybercriminals by thinking twice before they click on suspicious links or download content,” McAfee said in a statement.

The company advised users, in order to shun malware, to refrain from using illegal movie streaming sites and being careful of what links they click.

This year’s list also indicates interest in reality stars may have waned.
