We have an update from our contact at Google:
"Essentially the "Open in Docs" button (which has no actual link to Docs), leads to a web site that had a worm that would read the users contact list and send the same message to them.
The website is being blocked. All email from any h[#]@mailnator.com are being blocked. Further work is being done to identify the source."

It has been confirmed via the Division of IT that University of Maryland community members have been targeted in a series of email phishing attacks designed to trick them into clicking fraudulent and nefarious links.
