• gpg can no longer reach the hushmail keyring over Tor

    From Nomen Nescio@21:1/5 to All on Wed Jun 8 20:51:37 2016
    This command:

    $ torsocks gpg --keyserver ldap://keys.hush.com --search-keys bob@hushmail.com

    used to work, but now gives:

    ====8<------------------------------
    gpg: searching for "bob@hushmail.com" from ldap server keys.hush.com
    gpgkeys: unable to retrieve LDAP base: Can't contact LDAP server
    gpg: key "bob@hushmail.com" not found on keyserver
    gpg: keyserver internal error
    gpg: keyserver search failed: keyserver error
    ====8<------------------------------

    Has hushmail started blocking Tor? A keyid grab also fails:

    ====8<------------------------------
    $ torsocks gpg --keyserver ldap://keys.hush.com --recv-keys 0xDEADBEEF┬╣
    gpg: requesting key DEADBEEF from ldap server keys.hush.com
    gpgkeys: unable to retrieve LDAP base: Can't contact LDAP server
    gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
    gpg: Total number processed: 0
    gpg: keyserver internal error
    gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error
    ====8<------------------------------
