[Dshield] Just a heads up.

In case no one has noticed and they're wondering why they're not getting any
email from Bugtraq recently, I just found out what's up. Folks using
spfilter to filter their email and are using the RISKY_NET portion:

RISKY_NET.040113:199.201.233    SPAM bugtraq-posters mailman at netsys.com
spammed 2003-01
bugtraq-return-10491-list-bugtraq=serv.ch at securityfocus.com 2003-08
bugtraq-return-10494-list-bugtraq=serv.ch at securityfocus.com 2003-08

>From the cache file on RISKY_NET:

...the default timeout is between 3 to 6 months...

So, if you're using spfilter and not getting your daily bugtraq / security
focus mailings, you'll need to whitelist their servers or stop using the
RISKY_NET portion of spfilter.
