Due to a bug in the rule auto-promotion system, SEM rules were again
mistakenly pushed to the active rules, causing a flood of unexpected DNS
queries to this service provider.  A very similar issue happened back in
March 2011.  Upstream spamassassin needs to make an emergency sa-update
rule update to correct this situation.  Meanwhile, all spamassassin
admins should mitigate this issue by adding the following workaround to
their local.cf then restarting their spamd.

score T_URIBL_SEM           0
score T_URIBL_SEM_FRESH     0
score T_URIBL_SEM_FRESH_10  0
score T_URIBL_SEM_FRESH_15  0
score T_URIBL_SEM_RED       0

This bug was introduced simultaneously with the release of Spamassassin
3.3.2.  But since it was pushed in the sa-update channel, 3.3.1 users
are now effected.  Everyone should still upgrade to 3.3.2 in order to
fix other bugs.
