Umm, Has Amazon Been Hacked? Rachael Ray and a Zombie War?

So either someone at Amazon is a member of the Rachael Ray anti-fan club or they've been hacked by a member of the Rachael Ray anti-fan club. Either way, it's pretty funny. Check out what I saw when I just visited Amazon (click on the picture to see a larger version):


The page looks exactly like the regular one for Rachael's new book, Just in Time, except the title is World War Z: The Zombie War and maybe the price is different. If you run a search for Just in Time, this is what you get:


It even shows up with the wrong title in the search results list. What do you think - funny computer glitch or someone out there earning creativity points?

  1. Still like that when I just checked it out! Crazy. Did you e-mail Amazon.com websupport? I'd be interested to find out what happened.

  2. I had this book in my cart from yesterday, and was about to check out when I noticed the title! I freaked thinking someone hacked my shopping cart. But it's wrong all over the site. I emailed Amazon, but no reply.

  3. That's hilarious! Should I be afraid? Am I going to wake up to recipes for "30 minute brains tomorrow?

  4. Leigh - I just emailed them, so we'll see what happens!

    Lisa - I bet her folks will be mighty angry because I bet a bunch of people didn't purchase it for the same reason.

    Erin - yes, be afraid, be very afraid.

  5. Funny! But I hope that was the only part of Amazon hacked. Know what I mean?

  6. Good point, Sarah! It certainly does not instill confidence.
