I'm not entirely sure where this should be posted, so feel free to move it.

Today, I went onto the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood official site on a different computer (to my usual one) with a more advanced anti-virus (a higher version of Sophos I believe) and it blocked the website, claiming to have detected a trojan on it. The name it gave for the trojan was: 'Troj/ExePage-A' and it stated that it was a low risk tojan that attempted to download further malware onto your computer.

I'm not sure if this was an error on Sophos's part or the virus was actually a beneign program to help with the running of the website, but I feel that I should let the people at Ubi know.

From the sophos site:
"Troj/ExePage-A detects malicious web pages that will attempt to automatically download EXE files."

Trust me, ubisoft aren't going to put stuff like that on one of their sites. Worst malware they shovel is the DRM on their PC games, which they're fairly public about.

My guess is you had another site open at the same time which did contain malware.
