Hm, thanks for *this* info!
I have an older version (June) and Robert may have as well.
I suppose something must have changed since then (e.g. retrieval of the
hostnames like the scamnailer paackage does it?).
I get this output from running the script:
Reading status from
Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/2009
-503 exists... no - reseting..... ok
Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/-1.0
I am working with: Current: 2009-504 - 0 and Status: -1 - 0
This is base update

Updating live file /etc/MailScanner/phishing.bad.sites.conf
cp: cannot stat
such file or directory
and this leaves one without a phishing.bad.sites.conf as this has been
moved to phishing.bad.sites.conf.old which will get eventually overwritten
with an empty file on the next run.
