    Your link (after editing out the file:// part) would not load the pic,
    but clicking on the date taken link and then a thumbnail leads to this page

    Yes, it seems it is a phishing scam, and flickr are aware of it.

    Spammy likes to confuse and disrupt.
    Like the Tsunami warning.
    Also they like infecting windows users and to a certain extent root
    kitting Linux users.

    Take your pick.
    Whatever spammy is up to on good.

    Probably pedophiles who want to use one childs account to peddle porn or
    what ever to other kids.
