GTA V Full PC Game + Crack infects thousands

Be wary: Rockstar Games has still not said anything official about a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V - but that's not stopping "leaked versions" popping up online. While the 18GB file looks legitimate enough, it is - of course - a virus-packed scam.

Online scammers are always quick to pounce when they see there's a demand for something, and the 500,000+ gamers who want GTA V on PC were an easy target.

The file - discoverable through most torrent websites - is convincing in size, and even features a working setup.exe file. WCCF Tech reports that "thousands" of gamers have downloaded the file, potentially infecting their gaming rigs with malware, viruses and who-knows-what.

Of course, that's just the installer. This one's being advertised as "GTA V Full PC Game + Crack", and it packs a double-punch.

To get the "crack", gamers are redirected via .txt file to a third-party website which claims to have the information. What it actually has: A pile of surveys and adware designed to make money for the scammers.

It's simple, elegant, and will potentially snag many thousands of unsuspecting victims who want to play GTA V on PC without having to pay for it.

  1. All ya’ll downloaders need to calm down – maybe download something else in the mean time to hold ya over. GTA V will be on PC eventually, usually takes 3-5 months after the console release, which has been the case for the past GTA games.

    Wow. Maybe this is the way to stop thieves/pirates.
    Maybe developers should release their own fake cracked versions with viruses and Trojans too.
    When I was a kid I didn’t know any better and copied some games. I wish I’d realised what it meant to developers.
    Its funny that I recently found an old CD which had no-cd cracks and other patches on it, and my virus program found a shitload of viruses and Trojans that at the time were not detected. I guess you take that risk.
