There are no xfree 4.3 packages in the official stable release (not even in sid), you have to use a backport or compile it from sources.

You can look for an unofficial repository on www.apt-get.org

I just dist-upgraded to sid and got no problems downloading the packages 
from an official source (http.us.debian.org).

AFAIK the sites that are hosting the packages have not been compromised.

A brilliant light can either illuminate or blind. How will you know
which until you open your eyes?
