They sent the following message out a week or so ago:

Dear Space-Track User,

FINAL NOTICE: Next Tuesday, 16 July 2013, at 1100 PDT (1800 UTC), the 
space-track.org <http://space-track.org> team will shut off all access 
to the legacy website (https://www.space-track.org/perl/***). If you 
have not already done so, please transition all scripts that 
screen-scrape or download text/zip files from the legacy website to the 
upgraded/new website (https://www.Space-Track.org/#/recent).

If you do not transition your scripts to use the new Application 
Programming Interface (API) on the upgraded site, they will not perform 
correctly after we shut down the legacy website.  Please visit 
https://www.space-track.org/documentation for specific API information 
and https://www.space-track.org/documentation/#/howto for assistance in 
transitioning your scripts.  We also provide several sample queries 
(https://www.space-track.org/documentation/api#sampleQueries) and a 
Query Builder (https://www.space-track.org/#queryBuilder) to help build 
your new scripts.

Thank you,
The Space-Track Team
