This looks like some cute host registration trickery on the part of
terrorists.net.  I'm amused, and sorry I didn't think of this myself.

$ whois -h whois.internic.net microsoft.com

Whois Server Version 1.3

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

MICROSOFT.COM.IS.SECRETLY.RUN.BY.ILLUMINATI.TERRORISTS.NET
MICROSOFT.COM


Enough said. Similar for apple.com. The web-based whois client at
nsiregistry.com is giving correct results, as are the gtld-servers, as
does -h networksolutions.com

FreeBSD and at least one release of Linux I've tested query
whois.internic.net by default. If anyone is using automated whois in
production (very likely), check your results!
