GTA 5 Angry Planes mod found to contain malware

The GTA forums have discovered that the popular Angry Planes mod for GTA 5 contains malware.

The mod was released this month but it's starting to look like it contains a trojan downloader or spyware.

Puzzlingly, not everyone who has downloaded the mod seems to have been affected. Whether it's down to it being caught as it downloaded, the different iterations of the mod, or - as some are speculating - someone other than the modder putting the malware in there, is yet to be confirmed.

From the forums, we know that you should look out for trojans init.exe and fade.exe if you've already installed the mod. It's also advisable to change passwords, just to be on the safe side.
