Err, not sure how to answer that, but no, it's not just you.
We've all now been the recipients of this reminder of why we
tend to use other OSes. :-)
The lists @freebsd.org get boatloads of spam, and we see a
fraction of one percent of that get delivered to the list.
I've never seen this exact spam-type before, so perhaps whatever
solution postmaster@ is using on the FBSD MX servers hasn't
either. . . at any rate, I'm betting it won't pass it again.
My own accounts get *tons* more spam than my FBSD lists pass
to me, even with me (occasionally) keeping SA updated.
