Internet surfers might want to use caution before conducting a Google search for Heidi Klum.

The Project Runway host and former model has been ranked the "most dangerous celebrity" to seek out on the Web, according to a report from McAfee.

Heidi Klum 'most dangerous' celeb to search on Web.

What makes Klum so dangerous? The computer security firm says one in 10 searches for the celebrity lead to a malicious site capable of adding malware or other viruses to a computer.

"While slightly safer than last year, searching for top celebrities continues to generate risky results," said Paula Greve, director of Web security research at McAfee, in a statement. "Consumers should be particularly aware of malicious content hiding in 'tiny' places like shortened URLs that can spread virally in social-networking sites, or through e-mails and text messages from friends."

Last year's "most dangerous celebrity," Cameron Diaz, dropped to No. 2 on this list. CNN host and Larry King replacement Piers Morgan was third.

Here's a look at the top 10:
1. Heidi Klum
2. Cameron Diaz
3. Piers Morgan
4. Jessica Biel
5. Katherine Heigl
6. Mila Kunis
7. Anna Paquin
8. Adriana Lima
9. Scarlett Johansson
10. Emma Stone, Brad Pitt, Rachel McAdams (tie)
