I have /usr/sbin/update_phishing_sites which updates the save sites only.
It is the exact same file posted by Mark Sapiro.
I did just run it and I did get a newer file than the one I had before.
I do not have /usr/sbin/update_bad_phishing_sites
Locate (updatedb) does not find update_bad_phishing_sites any place.
According to my notes, I took out the cron job to run
update_phishing_sites when I installed the jkf.anti-spear-phishing
That now appears to be a mistake. I have to now put that back in.
