GTA V PC installer turns out to be malware, infects thousands

Grand Theft Auto V malware infects thousands of fools

Now, I want Grand Theft Auto V on PC as bad as the next guy, but I'm not going to install something from a torrent file and wonder why my PC has been infected by some nasty virus.

The infected game was 18GB in size, and with it, acts like a black hole sucking a bunch of your PC's content to someone who has just hacked you. An 18GB file would some nasty spyware, but people are fooled quite easily it seems. Do you know anyone who downloaded the 18GB GTA V malware? If so, let us know in the comments!
