Another Malware Lure. Not So Stormy?

Here is the malware lure du jour:

Subject: You have just recieved a NEW message!

You have just recieved a new Google Message!
You can view your message here: http://www.google.com/gmsgid=4289472

Note: If you do not already have Google Message Viewer installed, you will be prompted to install it.

The Google URL is an HTML link bearing a hidden actual destination at a hijacked South Korean computer on a broadband connection. The destination automatically downloads a file named GoogleSetup.exe. It's a new one, which very few antivirus products have definitions for as I write this.

This one doesn't seem to be as clever (or as correctly spelled) as the recent Storm invasions. Probably an independent production.
