If you’re planning to look up Usher, Luke Bryan or producer Armin van Buuren on the web, take heed.

Intel Security announced Tuesday that the musicians top its ninth annual list of the most dangerous celebrities online. Searches for those famous names are most likely to land users on websites that carry viruses or malware. The company used its own site ratings to compile the celebrity list.

Searches for Dutch trance DJ van Buuren carry the most risk: users have an almost 18 percent chance of landing on a web page with potential for online threats. Bryan, Usher, Britney Spears and Jay-Z round out the top five. A Katy Perry search carries a nearly 15 percent chance of connecting with a tainted site.

Also on this year’s list: Amy Schumer, Nina Dobrev, Lorde and Betty White.
