What is broken is the TXT DNS record for
which should tell you what version the scamnailer configuration is at. The 
downloads from the server eg.
will still work. As a temporary measure I am hardcoding the version into a 
hacked copy of the ScamNailer eg. adding
after the
die "Failed to retrieve valid current details\n" if $currentbase eq "-1";
line which I have commented out. If I run this hacked script I can update 
the ScamNailer configuration.
