Version 1.3.72 of the DCC source is in
http://www.dcc-servers.net/dcc/source/dcc.tar.Z  and

Commercial version 2.3.72 of the DCC Reputation code is in the usual place.

The CHANGES file starts with

    Fix holes in the detection of duplicate flooded reports.
    Fix quick database cleaning to not run dbclean 2 hours or less before
	the usual cron cleaning.
    Fix bug in counting DCC operations by the free DCC servers.

    Fix confusion in daily log messages between incoming and outgoing
	flood error messages.

    /var/dcc/libexec/dcc-stats-graph no longer combines RRD files to
	generate a graph. Instead the new /var/dcc/rrd-combine should be used
	to generate a combined file that is then graphed.
    Fix dccproc to report mail to the DCC server that DCC Reputations has
	marked as spam.
    Remove SOCKS flooding input bug that I added in 1.3.67.
    Fix a failure by DCC Reputation servers to fail to detect flooded
	duplicate reports.

    Enhance /var/dcc/libexec/list-clients
    Increase flooding listen() queue to try to deal with connection timeouts.
    dccifd should pay attention to thresholds in /var/dcc/whiteclnt
    Fix new fix for reputation report counting.

/var/dcc/libexec/updatedcc should automagically fetch, build, and
install the commercial or free version, depending on the .updatedcc_pfile
file, unless you have installed a version of Linux with the broken
default `sort` collating sequence since last upgrading.  If so, an
easy way to get the old updatedcc script working is to delete the
entire /var/dcc/build/dcc directory before running updatedcc.
