While I appreciate the effort to preserve old software in this manner, perhaps it should only be done if genuine, original copies of the software are obtained either from the original publishers or from a reliable source. Maybe this is actually the case and I'm misinterpreting it, but to me it seems likely someone uploaded some warez versions of software, which was often a source of viral infections back in the day. Aminet probably isn't the place for "backup" copies of old software someone found on 30 year old handwritten floppies in their attic - the TOSEC project already provides that function.
