If the user who downloaded the torrent attempts to install the game, they'll be presented with a survey and asked to send a text message to get a working serial key, which never comes - after the text message is sent, the owner of the infected device is then charged one euro per day, the International Business Times also reports.

Rockstar Games is rumored to add a PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 by the end of the year or the beginning of next year.

VG24/7 contends that a Grand Theft Auto 5 pre-load file leak suggests its October 1 release date version will be a 18GB download.

Rockstar has released a new trailer online, showing off a range of activities, from team skydiving to shootouts, but Grand Theft Auto 5 will also allow users to build Minecraft-like racetracks around the city.

The game's racetrack-building feature is rumored to draw in millions of fans of the block placing game.
