I see it too and also with ScamNailer. The issue is you have the latest
(patched) version of /usr/sbin/update_bad_phishing_sites and it tries to
guess the latest update if the txt record at is missing or out of date. The
record is still emails.2014-091.13 which is yesterday. There is no
record or data (yet?) for today. This may or may not resolve when some
server somewhere wakes up, comes back online or whatever the problem is.
