The link, which is removed in the above, appears to go to google.com but actually redirects to a malicious site.
The above link is similar to the malicious URL, and uses yahoo.com instead of the malicious site. Google is currently blocking this redirection, which is for the best.

ITS reported the email with full headers using the Google reporting form. Also ITS blocked access to the malicious website from our campus. Any off-campus user can still accidentally visit the website though. Thankfully this email was not delivered to a single inbox within our organization.
