    It seems to be a virus.

    nginx is a proxy server site, used by people trying to hide where they really are. The way that some people use expat sheild to access bbc iplayer when abroad

    have you installed any new software recently?

    nginx (eNGINe X) is actually a full blown webserver like apache.. It can also act as a forward proxy.

    It looks like you are being pointed at a webserver that doesn't have any content. Or your proxy settings have been surreptitiously changed to allow the nasty people to send you anywhere they want.

    Check the proxy settings in your browser..
