I randomly get the "Welcome to nginx!" message in IE (on some websites only). Cannot find anything on the web - one post seems to suggest it could be a virus. My Avast anti virus does not report any problems. I tried Hijack also with no positive results. Any ideas where I should look?
(Solved) - Welcome to nginx!(8 posts)
No. I also looked at my hosts file in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc" and all seems to be okay (?):
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# 18.104.22.168 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 22.214.171.124 x.acme.com # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
nginx is a high performance web server used by certain web sites, often in a load balancing environment.
Most likely you're getting the message because their web site temporarily died or they accidentally forgot to configure something.
It does not make sense - www.google.co.za returns this message (for at least 10 days now... it used to be my home page). The only way I can now google is to go to www.google.co.uk. However, I can access www.google.co.za form another home computer as well as my mobile.
The plot thickens... I installed Google Chrome and I can access www.google.co.za without any problems. Must be related to IE? How / where?
