ftp.gnu.org got cracked... how does this affect FreeBSD?

They are still checking the archives and the available checksums.
It seems that the sources have not been modified.

FreeBSD contains some GNU software. How is it handled when 
foreign sources are imported?

I just want to know to sleep better this night... The ftp-server was
cracked in March(!)... just imagine that. Lots of things can happen
in such a long period of time.
