Phish: "SHIPMENT LABEL" / "DHL Courier Services [roger@community.mile.org]"

This DHL-themed spam is actually a phishing email:

Attached is a PDF file shipmentt_label.pdf which is not malicious in itself, but contains a hypertext link (as you can see in this Hybrid Analysis report).

If the potential victim clicks "Click here" then they are directed to ow.ly/Sq9to and from there to a phishing page at br1-update.be/wg/lhd.php on (Inetserver Inc, US) which belongs to a netblock which also looks highly suspect.

The phishing page itself is a complex script which is Base 64 encoded, then hex encoded (Pastebin here) which is presumably phishing for email accounts. The spam itself appears to have been sent from a compromised webmail account at community.mile.org

For the moment, I would suggest that the entire range is malicious and should be blocked.
