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
for detailed information.


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

I expect this means that DNS has been compromised somewhere.
