According to lister noted here: URL there is a hacker running amuck! Read the disturbing message at that URL about the affected sites. The URL that I frequent for USGenWeb Louisiana Archives is the dot net domain and NOT the dot org domain so I don’t see the sites as being affected. Most of the URL’s for the dot org domain for the Louisiana Archives do not have the search engine running properly. I tend to stay away from the USGenWeb Louisiana Archives at the dot org domain for that reason. The Search link from some of the dot org domains have a BAD Search URL. There is a VERY subtle difference that you should identify.
This URL is Bad:

This slipped under my Louisiana genealogy radar from the Louisiana Dept. of Veteran Affairs. “The Louisiana Veterans Honor Medal was created by Act 695 of 2008 Louisiana Legislature. The intention is to recognize and honor all Louisiana veterans.” You may read more about this medal from their website. The Louisiana Archives USGenWeb site posted information concerning this medal here.
