Yes, it’s a ridiculous spam, but the malware it delivers is a rather nasty spambot.  As Adam here says “This is a very hard-to-remove spambot (full kernel malware), capitalizing on recent news events.”


Uses a redirect through Google (quite common these days) to deliver the user to the malware site. The initial payload is a trojan downloader (VT report here), which then pulls down the spambot, which we label as Trojan.Crypt.XPACK.Gen (VT report here).
