Code from a configuration file allegedly coming from a pirated Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto V and dumped from the memory of a console appeared on Pastebin. That’s pretty normal, as pirates love to dabble with the files of the games they illegally acquire.

Of course the user that posted the code could have just created a fake file in order to play a prank on us all, but would someone really write hundreds of lines of seemingly legit code just to play a prank?
