In a different vein than the stuff posted there, but earlier today I was discussing a spoken word LP I heard years ago-- it was designed to ward off burglars (similar to the “Sebastian Speaks” LP), and was the sound of a husband and wife idly chatting, a very weird listen.

Back in my day, comedy LP’s were a thing.

Hey y’all, I was taking a look at this and writing it up for ResearchBuzz (with a tip o’ the nib to Boing Boing, of course) but when I went to the About Page (http://historical-records.com/about/ ) I saw some things that looked like link injections? Take a look at both that page and the page source. I ran that page through a couple of online malware scanners and got a hit for TrojWare.JS.Redirector.AL on one while Sucuri lit up like a Christmas Tree ( https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/historical-records.com/about/ ).

I’m going to hold off on writing about it but I will contact the Web wrangler. I’m sorry if this is out of bounds for the forum – I have not posted here before, but this concerned me and I wanted to share.
