In October 2011 , I released an update for the main parser script used to generate the BIND/PowerDNS configuration files. This release of the sinkhole_parser.sh script contains some important fixes, including a rewrite of the section that parses the multiple sites into 2 separate lists: site_specific_sinkhole.conf (host web list) and entire_domain_sinkhole.conf (domain wildcard web list). The script contains new lists that were not part of the 7 July 2011 release.
The script contains a fix for parsing and loading records into PowerDNS database where sometimes it would fail indicating that a record was already loaded. It has been fixed in both the sinkhole_parser.sh and powerdns_sinkhole_logs.sh (located in /usr/local/sbin) used in Webmin to load records from the GUI.
A new script, search.sh (/root/scripts) has been added to provide a search capability in Webmin (two files copied to /etc/webmin/dns-sinkhole) of the BIND DNS Sinkhole lists to verify if a particular host or domain is listed in the sinkhole.
