An e-mail has been going around teasing people to click a URL and download a .zip file, which contains the Grand Theft Auto V beta... or what it wants people to think. Instead, they're downloading malware. The e-mail itself uses Rockstar imagery, and a fancy banner, but comes in plain text explaining: "You invited beta tester GTAV to Windows."
