Pirates Find and Release ‘GTAV for PC’
OK, let’s get this out of the way: Grand Theft Auto V is a fantastic game.
Rockstar has topped expectations, delivering a masterfully crafted experience to millions of console gamers. However, Rockstar has stayed completely silent on whether or not GTAV will be headed to the PC, making thousands sign a petition and rumors spread like wildfire.

However, one group of pirates claim to have ‘found’, cracked and released a PC version of the game. Although, the hundreds of people who have downloaded and installed the massive 18GB file now report that their computers are teeming with viruses. Who saw that one coming?

I must say that I’m rather impressed with the work that went into quite possibly the best Honey Pot this year. The ‘pirate group’ compiled a package of 18GB worth of viruses, developed a fast, efficient installer (that looks the part) and even gave the download website effective SEO data, making Google’s algorithms put it at the top of various searches!
To those foolish enough to download and install the rather obvious trap, this is what you get for pirating games. Learn to buy games and support the developers.
