Grand Theft Auto V has not even received an official release date on PC, let alone a stable build. However, this hasn’t deterred some would-be pirates, who have downloaded a popular torrent that claims to contain Rockstar’s highly anticipated game.


Many of these clueless pirates have instead found themselves with a copy of the installer file for Double Fine’s The Cave. This wouldn’t be such a bad thing, but the setup file also contains a nice surprise; something called Trojan.GenericKDV.1134859. A pretty generic trojan virus, it is capable of stealing user data and draft the host computer into a botnet.
If that wasn’t enough, anyone that tries to install Cave Theft Auto will need to fill out a survey and send off a text message in order to receive a working key (twist: you won’t receive it). After sending off the text, your phone will then be charged one euro every day.
Even if you’re the impatient type, just wait for the official release, watch some of the sweet trailers to sate your appetite, and don’t be a dick.

Providing your phone number in a phony survey is just about the worst thing you can do. About a month later, you will see ridiculous charges tacked on to your phone bill... and the worst part is that it's really complicated to stop the charges.

Who would download GTA 5 for PC knowing it's probably far from completion, it hasn't been announced & as for as Rockstar are concerned it doesn't even exist. You would have to be a special type of person to be fooled into downloading it believing it to be legit.

Anyone who thinks there is a PC version for download is straight retarded beyond the point of return so they deserve to be punished for being so stupid.

I wonder who would be foolish enough to even fall for that?! I mean like its a common sense that this game hasn't come out and its still around two weeks to go, anyone who download games for free via torrents for a while would already know that working torrent version of the game is never being posted on any tracker until the game officially releases and even if it does, the .exe of the game still needs to get hacked, which requires special patch to work, not even single releaser posts such a patch BEFORE the game gets released, so i'd say they deserve what they get for being such a tools!

I hate stupid Survey "survey pass, you don't need to do the survey" then they ask you to do an survey to unlock the key which it is fake key and they will not unlock you to download it.

why would anyone download it ? if you know how to download torrents then you can't be retard enough to download something without ever thinking it may be fake.

either this is bullsh*t or noone downloaded it.
