Version 1.3.28 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Version 2.3.28 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with:

    Turn off use of futimes() on Linux to resolve bug diagnosed by
	Wolfgang Breyha.
    Fix two locking problems dccm and dccifd that might cause the crashes
	reported by Gary Mills.
    Reduce dccifd and dccm thread stack size.
    Fix bug that kept some DCC Reputations from being compressed in
	the database.
    Change the default DCC Reputation rejection message to the equivalent of
	-r '%s bad reputation; see http://commercial-dcc.rhyolite.com/cgi-bin/reps.cgi?tgt=%s'
    Fix an odd case where flooding connections between DCC servers were
	not being shut down.  I think it only happened when a firewall
	or something else systematically filtered TCP FINs.
    Use setresgid() for setegid() on HP-UX to fix problem reported by
	Giacomo Fazio.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and install
this version.
