(Mods: Please move to 'general discussion' if more appropriate.) I went to order a book this morning on Amazon. The hardcover was a bit pricey so I clicked on "paperback" and suddenly the author's name had changed . . . to "Booby Brown." Given the book was serious non-fiction this seemed a startling choice of pseudonym, if indeed that was what it was. I decided to do a search inside Amazon for "Booby Brown" . . . and got back a 20-page list: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=a9_asc_1?rh=i:aps,k:booby+brown&keywords=booby+brown&ie=UTF8&qid=1491252106 So essentially a wide range of authors had their name changed to Booby - generally only for one of the formats listed for a book, not all formats. Those affected include J.K. Rowling, Ann Patchett, Harper Lee, James Patterson, Angela Duckworth, Orhan Pamuk, George Orwell, Andrea Wulf, etc. No immediately obvious pattern. Amazon may have recovered by the time you read this, so here's a screen cap from 4:46 p.m. EST; note the first hit is actually for "Bobby Brown," a real author; it's all Boobies after that. A web search didn't find any news, so I went to Twitter & found out someone had tweeted Amazon help, who confirmed it's a situation that has been escalated: One relevant result of this: I canceled my book order, got out of Amazon, and went & ordered an antivirus program/malware for the Macs at our house. I've read before in this forum that AV for OS X is a good idea, and I did consider it a couple of years ago but passed. Not any more. "Booby Brown" isn't aimed at home users, but this is just the last straw - this, and the takeover of devices of all sorts for server attacks. Program I got is Bitdefender, gets good reviews.
