Clicking on the attachment sends the intended victim to a malicious web page at [donotclick]himalayaori.ru:8080/forum/links/column.php (report here), in this case via a legitimate hacked site at [donotlick]www.unisgolf.ch/report.htm but that is less important.

himalayaori.ru is hosted on a couple of IPs that look familiar: (SoftLayer, US) (OVH, France)
