Priyanka, who has been part of hit movies like "Don", "Agneepath(2012)" and "Barfi!" has replaced Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone in this year's McAfee's Most Dangerous Celebrity survey, said a statement.

According to the survey, cyber criminals use celebrities to take advantage of fans seeking more information about the stars.

Cyber criminals often lure unsuspecting supporters to sites laden with malware that can steal passwords and personal information.

In a country like India, fans are more prone to becoming a victim of cyber crime, says Venkatasubrahmanyam Krishnapur, vice-president of Engineering-Consumer and Mobile, Business Group, McAfee India Centre.

"In India where celebrities are given the status of semi gods, cyber criminals often use their names to lure people to sites that actually host malicious software designed to compromise personal details and disrupt devices," said Krishnapur in a statement.

"By including the names of popular celebrities in a website's search tags, cyber criminals are able to direct more visitors to malicious sites where they may unwittingly sign up for spam or harmful spyware ending up with a malware ridden devices," he added.

Actors Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have occupied the second and third position in the list of most dangerous celebrities in India online respectively.

The top 10 dangerous celebrities online are:

-Priyanka Chopra

-Shah Rukh Khan

-Salman Khan

-Kareena Kapoor

-Akshay Kumar

-Saif Ali Khan

-Amitabh Bachchan

-Farhan Akhtar

-Sunny Leone
