There have been several issues with the bad phishing sites/Scamnailer
updates since last April.

The first issue was that the DNS TXT record for was not being updated (See
and then later it disappeared altogether. I developed patches to work
around this. See

More recently, there was a problem with the updates themselves being
missing. See
This was only temporary. This issue was fixed and also the issue of the
missing/not updated DNS TXT record was fixed as well.

Now there is a new problem: All the data and updates are working, but
there have been no new sites/domains added to the list since "This file
was generated at Thu Oct 10 00:44:45 BST 2013" (over 5 days ago).

In my experience, new domains are added multiple times every day. Thus,
it appears that the underlying process which collects these names and
updates the list may not be getting its data.

Can anyone investigate this?
