After clicking the link provided in the mail, recipient will be redirected to the malicious page through multiple sites. At the end of redirection, the victim will be ended in this page "46.249.*.122/links/systems-links_warns.php".

It seems like the landing page of BlackHole Exploit version 2.0. In previous version of BH, you will see "main.php?page=[random_number]" at the end of url.  But the latest version use combination of meaningful words.

Once again , i like to remind the Dynamic URL feature of the BH 2.0. The generated link targets only one users which is valid for a few seconds. Yes, it is true, the above link generates 404 error at the time of researcher visit.

At the time of writing this article, the above IP is unavailable.

Today , i have analyzed three malicious IP address which uses the latest version of BlackHole Exploit.  only one IP displayed the exploits. After few seconds, that IP also start to generate 404 error page.
