Thousands Of Idiots Torrent GTA V PC Installer




/ 8 years ago

Many users are clearly eager to get their hands on Grand Theft Auto V, even more so when it comes to the PC. So much so that thousands of players are willing to download a huge 18GB file that promised to be the game, then install it and then wonder why their computers are pillaged by viruses.

Are these people idiots? No doubt about it! Downloading a torrent of a game that hasn’t even been announced for PC, let alone released is madness. Yet for all their foolishness, these fools were fooled by the best as the torrent in question not only looked like a legit file, but also acted like one. It was verified, has a high SEO ranking (comes out near the top on Google search) and the installer looked legit right up until the last moment when it asks you to fill out your private details on a website in return for a serial key.

Of course when you complete your 18GB download, hand over your private data and allow what I can only assume to be 18GB of spyware to run loose on your system, you still don’t get to play GTA V PC… why am I not surprised. I also suspect Rockstar might not be in such a rush to pull this one from download sites, it’s the ultimate honey pot and I’m amazed people fell for it.

Lesson of the day: If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
