This is rather suspicious (and confirmed by three other people):

------------------------------------------------
$ whois amazon.com

Whois Server Version 2.0

Domain names in the .com and .net domains can now be registered
with many different competing registrars. Go to
http://www.internic.net
for detailed information.

AMAZON.COM.ZZZZZ.GET.LAID.AT.WWW.SWINGINGCOMMUNITY.COM
AMAZON.COM.MORE.INFO.AT.WWW.BEYONDWHOIS.COM
AMAZON.COM.IS.N0T.AS.1337.AS.WWW.GULLI.COM
AMAZON.COM
------------------------------------------------

whois for yahoo.com and google.com yield similar results.

I expect this means that DNS has been compromised somewhere.
