GFI has recently spotted a fictitious Vice City version of Grand Theft Auto being offered on a third-party site that tricks users into downloading a Trojan masquerading as a Flash update.

Once the victims download, install and run the bogus app, they are faced with a big button they have to press in order to start the game. But clicking on just makes another message appear, saying ““Flash Player is required” and offering a download link.”
