The links go through a legitimate hacked site to some obfuscated javascipt leading to a malicious payload on synetworks.net/main.php?page=2d057d472cd217e2 and synetworks.net/content/ap2.php?f=3dc5c (report here) hosted on 76.12.101.172 (HostMySite, US). That IP is also home to housespect.net which also appears to be malicious. Blocking the IP should prevent any other malicious sites on the same server from being a problem.
