Why? WHOIS is a free service and any download would be out of date even before it had finished downloading.

I am taking a network security course and was tasked with finding one.  I have spent so much time looking that I am simply seeking help on it becasue apparently I need that help.  I actually won't be downloaded it for the reasons you state.

See the findings.
Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

Have you seen the RIPE database ? FTP site at: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/ripe.db.gz
or split by object type at: ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/split

Or the APNIC database : http://www.apnic.net/db/dbcopyright.html

the big/ bulk whois database can only be accessed via queries - suppose it would be possible to query and capture large result sets at a time, but then you would have to suffle it away somehow...
