By Staff Writer | September 05, 2013 01:49 PM EDT
Pirates released a fake online version of Grand Theft Auto 5 stuffed with a Trojan virus that stole data and hacked the computers of thousands of gamers around the world, the International Business Times reports.
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.
