Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone can help me out with a problem. My son downloaded and ran .exe filed he shouldn't of. It's one of those .exe files that goes and starts downloading files off the internet. I have no idea what files it actually downloaded and installed. I tried running it in sandboxie but i had no luck figuring it out. I really don't know jack about this stuff. Can someone with experience with this stuff run this file in a controlled, safe environment like a sandbox program and tell what it's actually downloading and where too? I know this is asking a lot but I am very worried that it downloaded and installed some malicious software. If anyone can help me out it would be most appreciated.

UPDATE: I found out about this website which allows you to upload a file and it runs and analyzes it for malicious activity. I have no idea if what I am looking at it is good or bad. https://anubis.iseclab.org/?action=result&task_id=1d9bc27502630d8c405ab4a5af339852e&format=html

Is your son into playing games? GTA 5 Game.exe is a game cheat (crack, keygen) for Grand Auto Theft.

VirusTotal Analysis of GTA 5 Game.exe indicates it is malware.
