The link redirects through a couple of legitimate hacked sites and ends up on hakkabout.com/search.php?page=73a07bcb51f4be71 on (Linode, US). According to Wepawet, a subsequent download is attempted from kansamentos.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=192151 on  (Nuclear Fallout Enterprises, US). Blocking those two IPs is probably a good idea, although it isn't the first time that Linode or Nuclear Fallout Enterprises have hosted malware recently and it may not be the last.
