Package: spfqtool
Version: 0.999-1.0.0-p3-3
Severity: important

The libspf0 library is unable to parse the SPF record for paypal.com.  I have
classified this bug as 'important' because paypal.com is one of the Internet's
most frequently forged domains, and the "DUNNO" response from whitelister
(which uses the same libspf0 implementation of the SPF standard) opens a
serious hole for phishing attacks.

I have installed spftool and produced the same parsing problem on the command
line.  Here is the output of a query against the paypal.com SPF record using

[inkblot@dorothy:~]$ spfqtool -d 255 -e 1 -i -h mail.example.com -s service@paypal.com
SPF Query Tool v0.4 - James Couzens <jcouzens@codeshare.ca>
