Assassin's Creed fan site infected with Zeus malware

A fan site for the massively popular "Assassin's Creed" computer game has been harboring a nasty banking Trojan, and visitors for the past eight weeks may have been caught in its cross hairs.

The French fan site, Assassinscreedfrance.fr, is infected with a JavaScript redirector that takes those who visit the site to a Saint Petersburg, Russia-based malware site, which then connects their system to a Zeus botnet, the security firm Avast explained. (Assassin's Creed, PS3, Xbox 360)

That kinda sucks but I've never even heard of this site, is it popular and do a lot of people visit it?

It's an AC fan site
Popular for gamers who enjoy that specific title.

And just when you thought online banking, was safe...
