we need /usr/sbin/update_bad_phishing_sites. Unfortunately,
it contains a bad CVS id (the same as the update_phishing_sites script).
What happens if you run it?

Today I get a slightly different output:
Reading status from 
Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/2009
-504 exists... no - reseting..... ok
Checking that /var/spool/MailScanner/quarantine/phishingupdate/cache/-1.0 
exists... ok
I am working with: Current: 2009-505 - 1 and Status: -1 - 0
This is base update
Unable to retrieve :500 Can't connect 
to (connect: timeout)
Update required
Failed to retrieve at 
/usr/sbin/update_bad_phishing_sites line 198.
Unable to open base file 

Looks like the update mechanism is still legit, but I'm getting blocked?
This script was running hourly as per MS default setup. Now it's not 
running at all.
Jules, are you listening? Should this work or not?
