“Leaked” PC Version of GTA 5 a Scam
What’s worse than a bit of malicious software sneaking its way onto your PC? Downloading a whopping 18GB worth of malware in one fell, PC-killing swoop.
That’s just what you’ll get if you try to pirate the non-existent PC version of Grand Theft Auto V from any number of torrent sites, but that hasn’t stopped thousands of people from doing it anyway.
Kotaku directs us to WCCF Tech, which outs the “leaked” PC version of GTA 5 as fake. WCCF Tech notes the scam is cleverly sizable to further entice downloaders, and even includes a setup.exe file that actually works. Well, “works” in that it enables you to easily install a metric ton of malware.
For the record, Rockstar has not confirmed or denied there will be a PC version of GTA 5, but various rumors claim our platform of choice will get its ticket to Los Santos in early 2014.
