When I try to access http://assassinscreed.wikia.com/ , I get an alert from Google that reads

Warning: Visiting this site may harm your computer!
The website at assassinscreed.wikia.com contains elements from the site 212.117.180.54, which appears to host malware - software that can hurt your computer or otherwise operate without your consent. Just visiting a site that contains malware can infect your computer.
And then on the diagnostics page, it says

Of the 100 pages we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2010-02-04, and the last time suspicious content was found on this site was on 2010-02-04.
Malicious software includes 108 trojan(s), 103 exploit(s), 1 scripting exploit(s).

This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including AS5577 (ROOT).
Is this actually true? Because I have been on this site numerous times, I haven't had any problems, but this is the first time I have received this warning.

If you got that warning, it likely means somebody added a link that possibly has malware inserted. I'll have a look on site, but chances are it has been removed already.

It has nothing to do with ACW itself.
