Grand Theft Auto V PC Torrent Infects Thousands Of Systems

Many PC gamers have had a nasty surprise, after an 18Gb torrent file claiming to be Grand Theft Auto V appeared on torrent sites. This is despite a PC version not evening being officially announced yet.

WCCFTech have reported the massive torrent has the appearance of being the full game, but once downloaded and executed malware is installed. To make matters worse, online surveys bombard the user so they can get a fake registration key. 

Like with many things in life, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. While GTAV is an amazing game, it isn’t worth getting your rig riddled with malware.

What do you think? Is this a case of thousands of people doing something stupid, or an easily made mistake? Let us know in the comments.
