When I log into KDP, I get a page that says it's down for scheduled maintenance.

OK, that can happen, and isn't what I'm talking about.

The page has a box with the same message in a number of "languages". Watch this:

English

Yeah I got that too. There was a note at the top for the last few days about the maintenance. As for the languages? I dunno.

Well, yeah, but in case you hadn't noticed, that ain't German, French (they can't even spell it correctly), Italian or Spanish.

Uhm. really, this smells like a hacker attack.
oH.

Here is how the "French" translates:

I prefer, however, fox brush, old or ugly character feugait proper form, try to USE. FATHOM Bureau tation damage indeed reached the right to pick Search, as accurate as if a nuisance animal health. Better twice home base or to assist, value, and training.

That looks like the gibberish that website designers use to fill in space that will be filled with content. (Many use latin, but that ain't latin.) Perhaps they just forgot to fill it in.

Character development PLUNGE Retail construction management. Geminus feugait from Recurring job Neo, send unique base paper, reject it, of becoming. Now, the tank, pump flow items refresh us great pain and a severe lack of it, he.
Sounds like Italian to me.

Yep, it was Latin folks, used by web developers as place holders because they ASSUME no one reads it anymore. I took 4 years, so while, no I can't translate that without a dictionary and some serious notes from middle school and high school on the irregular conjugation of verbs, I can at least recognize the endings.

I got that earlier tonight. I didn't read the languages close up though. Thought it was normal maintenance. But yeah, it's back up now.  :D Found out I sold another book tonight. Worth waiting for.
