I remember the nginx thing being a virus on a computer long ago. My search engines are just fine, everything is fine. I clicked on a wikia png link and that nginx page came up. But again everything else is fine.

I tried to look up what nginx is, but mostly everything is about that same virus I was thinking about, stopping sites like Google and Youtube. Is this error ever legit?

Nginx is the web server that they're using, so that's why. Never heard of such virus anyway.

Ahh, ok cool. Thanks!

Basically it was kind of like a redirect virus. If you try to use a search engine like Google, or even try to go to Youtube, you would get that 404 error nginx for everything. That was basically it. It was either a hosts file change or a rootkit problem....maybe both. I remember it from a few years ago so needless to say when I just saw this on mine now I got scared. lol
