The banner link currently showing Theremini, and which is intended to direct traffic to Moog Music has been hacked, and is now redirecting traffic to bing, and goo dot gl, as well as other unintended sites. Momentarily, you will land on Moog Music, but then will be redirected within a couple of seconds.

Please delete the banner, and obtain a fresh one from backup, or from Moog Music directly.

The banner link is not hacked.

It's a redirect in the comment post on the moog site
If you disable javascript in the browser the page will not be redirected.

The redirect is in the post: On January 24, 2015 pattasrinivasvarma said:

If you click on a link it should take you somewhere sensible, without having to deactivate Javascript or otherwise configure your browser.
The banner link in question goes through various places to somewhere non sensical.

If you have time on your hands, then head over to 'Web Pages That Suck' for some tips into what isn't cool.

I clicked on the THEREMINI link and got taken to a webpage that told me I had to prove I was human. This is not a hack. The THEREMINI destination has been diverted by the ghost of Leon Theremin who is trying to keep people away from an instrument he disapproves of!

Many of Moog Inc.'s links seem hacked (this is the page that has the Theremini demo):

The comments look to be full of spam in what Google translate is saying is Indonesian, with links to some kind of magic healing cucumber jelly (band name!).
