That GTA 5 PC torrent is actually malware

1155002

Apparently, there's a file floating around the internet claiming to be a leaked PC version of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto 5. Don't download it. It's been reported that the file, which checks in at a believable 18GB size (and even has an actual setup.exe file that works), is nothing more than malware.

According to WCCF, which first reported the news, the torrent has been downloaded "well into the thousands" and is ranked "very high" in SEO, meaning many more could fall victim to the trap.

Don't believe it! Despite rumors of a PC version in the works, Rockstar has yet to even announce GTA 5 for PC. Until they do, expect any type of torrent claiming to be a PC version of the blockbuster title to be nothing more than a fake.
