Eminem is regarded as one of the most prominent rappers of all time. The Detroit rapper has a long list of accomplishments behind him. A cybersecurity company revealed which artists cyber-attackers most frequently use as bait. Eminem is among the top three and, aside from Drake, the only rapper in the top ten.

Popular internet searches are also the most infected with links to malicious software, which aims to steal, modify, disable, or destroy data by gaining unauthorized access to computer systems. Surfshark shows which popular culture search terms are the most dangerous to look up online.

The company examined the most popular search terms as well as the number of URLs containing potential malware that appeared in search results and ranked them from most dangerous to least dangerous. According to this ranking, Robert de Niro is the most dangerous actor to search for online.

“Finding Dory” is the most dangerous movie to search for online, and Mortal Kombat 11 is the game that returns the most infected links as a result of a search query. Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, and Eminem are the three most dangerous names in music. They are followed by Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, with Drake ranking seventh.

According to Surfshark, “musicians with younger fans, who may be a little less clued-up on internet safety and more likely to click on malicious downloads links, may be especially dangerous to search for.”

It’s a convoluted way of measuring an artist’s popularity, but seeing Eminem among those “musicians with younger fans” only proves that his music’s appeal transcends generations. Check out the picture from the website itself below.
