Actress Priyanka Chopra, who made her international TV debut with American thriller series "Quantico", has replaced Alia Bhatt to top the list of "most sensational celebrity" as cyber crooks are using her name to lure netizens to malicious websites, security software company Intel Security has announced.

In its ninth edition this year, Intel Security Most Sensational Celebrity survey has found Priyanka topping the charts in Indian cyberspace, followed by Shraddha Kapoor, Kapil Sharma, Jacqueline Fernandez and Kangana Ranaut.

The research found this year that almost 11.47 percent of all links generated while evaluating the top ten celebrity names led to malware ridden or suspicious sites," the statement said.

“Cybercriminals capitalise on consumer interest around popular culture by luring unsuspecting consumers to risky sites to steal sensitive personal data".
