The malicious payload is at [donotclick]74.63.252.106/getfile.php?u=71fd37ed (report here) which is part of a small netblock of 74.63.252.96/27 rented out by Limestone Networks in the US. Some attempt has been made to prevent analysis by generating a fake 403 page if you try to analyse it directly.
