This is also coming from other URL's as well. This is similar to the Wall-mart phish that hit a few weeks ago.

@silly_rabbit: the first step is always a legitimate hacked site, then the victim gets redirected to a payload site which is easier to block. And yes.. it's the same group who send the Walmart one a few weeks ago!
