Payload is on [donotclick]drstephenlwolman.com/topic/sessions-folk-binds.php via [donotclick]new.hotelniles.com/xd2iqku.html  and some intermediate scripts.

More analysis later..

OK, I have a little more time to look at this. Here is the screenshot:

Clicking the link takes you to a "ThreeScripts" page, but subtly different from previous ones, leading to scripts at:

These scripts use a ".txt" extenstion, presumably to fool AV scanners.

The next step is a kind of weird Javascript leading to a malware page at [donotclick]drstephenlwolman.com/topic/sessions-folk-binds.php hosted on (Nuclear Fallout Enterprises, US).

The domain in question is a hijacked GoDaddy domain.The payload is hardened against analysis. There will almost definitely be other hijacked domains hosted on this server, blocking access to it might be a good idea.
