Hmm, if I try to access:
(Where 126.96.36.199 is what my DNS translates www.update.microsoft.com
This is probably not the site you are looking for!
You attempted to reach 188.8.131.52, but instead you actually reached a
server identifying itself as www.update.microsoft.com. This may be
caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more
serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to
visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of 184.108.40.206.
Is this my browser (Chrome) not getting its act together, or is there an
infelicity in one of the protocols?
