You can see the URLquery report for the EK here. I would strongly recommend blocking web traffic to 188.8.131.52 (ColoCrossing, US).
A second round of these is doing the rounds, leading to an exploit kit on [donotclick]184.108.40.206:8080/xolbnl9ehz (report) so I also recommend blocking 220.127.116.11 (Thyphone Communications, Russia)
