This has always been a messy zone file. It has nothing to do with any
attack whatsoever. If you want to be really anal, you can contact the
hostmaster; if that doesn't work, try <email@example.com>.

Only a couple (maybe even only one) of the DNS servers allow AXFR (zone

doesn't. Try a "host -t ns pgp.net" and use the results until you find
one that works. ns.pipex.net work; I just tried them.
