Lindsay Lohan -- Concerned About Viruses

7/15/2010 9:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is afraid that her upcoming jail stint will lead to an outbreak of viruses -- and now she's taking action to stop a potential epidemic ... that could infect your computer.

Turns out, cyber criminals are creating fake Lindsay Lohan-related web pages in an attempt to dupe unsuspecting web-surfers into clicking on "poisoned" links ... links that could contain viruses programmed to steal your personal info.

Now, Lindsay has teamed up with Norton AntiVirus to combat the issue -- releasing the following statement:

“I know I am very newsworthy, especially with everything going on and I’d hate to see my current situation cause frustration or damage to my fans.”

She adds, “If my friends and fans want to know what’s going on with me, they need to stick to reliable news media outlets and not click on just any link in a search result. Better yet, please follow my Twitter feed and get the news straight from me!”

Norton tells us that fans should be especially cautious of links promoting things like, "Pictures from inside the jail cell? Lindsay’s jailhouse diary?!"

Someone has an inflated sense of self-importance.

Perhaps she's not aware that those infected websites pop up for every sensationalistic bit of gossip, and not just for her.

And perhaps she's also unaware that many of us just go straight to TMZ.

P.S. So she's going to be allowed to tweet while in jail? Or is she really, really counting on being able to stay in her lawyer's rehab facility where she'll be allowed to do whatever the hell she wants?
