Searching for the lesbian star of the upcoming superhero show will take users to more malicious sites than any other celebrity name.  

The out star of the upcoming Batwoman on the CW, Ruby Rose, is the "most dangerous" celebrity to search this year, the internet security company McAfee found, according to CNN.

Searching for Rose, a native Australian model, DJ, and actress who's starred in Orange Is the New Black and The Meg, will take internet users to more malicious sites and malware than any other person searched for, the security company reports.

McAfee's chief consumer security evangelist, Gary Davis, said in a statement that hackers often use celebrity names and fandoms to put malicious links on users' radars.

"It's important for consumers to think before they click to be sure that they are landing on safe digital content and protecting themselves from cybersecurity threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity," Davis said.

There was an online uproar spearheaded primarily by LGBTQ social media users earlier this year when Rose was named as the actress who'll star as the lesbian superhero Batwoman on the CW. Many felt that Rose, who is a lesbian, was wrong because she isn't Jewish like the character. Others were confused about how Rose's sexual identity, and some were angry because she's a lesbian who is popular with straight audiences. At any rate, Rose became the subject of intense internet scrutiny.

There was only one man among the top 10 most dangerous celebrities to search, and that was Brad William Henke, who was also on Orange Is the New Black, according to CBS.

On the list, Rose is followed by reality star Kristin Cavallari, Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, TV's Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, Rose Byrne, Will & Grace's outspoken activist Debra Messing, Kourtney Kardashian, bisexual actress Amber Heard, talk show host Kelly Ripa, and Henke.
