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.
