    Hello everyone,

    I don't know anything about your site or company or technologies. I haven't bought or installed anything from you...

    However... From a couple of weeks ago, every time I try to access the PayPal website from my computer, the cPanel and Apache page below shows.

    I receive Paypal email messages, no problem with that, but when I click a link on an email message, a security certificate error message appears...

    Hope you can tell me why this happens and how to solve it. I've scanned my computer for viruses several times and everything seems to be alright.

    Thanks


    This is the page that appears when I try to enter www.paypal.com:

    Great Success !
    Apache is working on your cPanel® and WHM™ Server
    If you can see this page, then the people who manage this server have installed cPanel and WebHost Manager (WHM) which use the Apache Web server software and the Apache Interface to OpenSSL (mod_ssl) successfully. They now have to add content to this directory and replace this placeholder page, or else point the server at their real content.

    ATTENTION!
    If you are seeing this page instead of the site you expected, please contact the administrator of the site involved. (Try sending an email to <webmaster@domain>.) Although this site is running cPanel, WebHost Manager, and Apache software it almost certainly has no other connection to cPanel Inc. or the Apache Group. Please do not send mail about this site or its contents to cPanel Inc. or the Apache Group.

    About cPanel:
    cPanel is a leading provider of software for the webhosting industry. If you would like to learn more about cPanel please visit our website at www.cpanel.net. Please be advised that cPanel Inc. is not a web hosting company, and as such has no control over content found elsewhere on this site.

    About Apache HTTP Server:
    The Apache HTTP Server is an open source web server which powers many of the worlds web sites. The Apache HTTP server is part of the Apache Group's many influential projects. Their efforts have helped shape much the world wide web, and they continue to be a dominating force in the web hosting industry.

    Yes, when I enter Paypal from any other computer, it works fine, but not on mine...

    Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?

    may be we can help, if you could provide the result of following command (from command prompt)

    nslookup paypal.com

    from your machine.

    If you are using windows,

    paste the contents of

    c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    If you are on linux, you already know where to look for :)

    Hello SS-Maddy

    Hello, on a browser window I pasted c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    And this is what I got:

    *# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # Éste es un ejemplo de archivo HOSTS usado por Microsoft TCP/IP para Windows.
    #
    # Este archivo contiene las asignaciones de las direcciones IP a los nombres de
    # host. Cada entrada debe permanecer en una línea individual. La dirección IP
    # debe ponerse en la primera columna, seguida del nombre de host correspondiente.
    # La dirección IP y el nombre de host deben separarse con al menos un espacio.
    #
    #
    # También pueden insertarse comentarios (como éste) en líneas individuales
    # o a continuación del nombre de equipo indicándolos con el símbolo "#"
    #
    # Por ejemplo:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # servidor origen
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # host cliente x

    174.132.158.62 www.paypal.com

    174.132.158.62 peb1.bbvanetlatam.com



    Now, the attachement shows what I got with nslookup paypal.com

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Use notepad and open c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts then go to the lines and delete them and save the hosts file.

    If it will not let you save the hosts files it is part of the Trojan/virus that attacked your system.

    You can run SpyBot Search and Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/, Free AVG http://free.avg.com/download?prd=afe (Click on the software on the left side of the page) and Lavasoft Adaware http://www.lavasoft.com/ to remove those types of issues.

    Hi,

    You're welcome, just be sure to use something to scan the whole computer, some Trojan/worm put those entires in the hosts file.
