I suspect this has to do with the apparent security breach that some of
debian.org's machines suffered in the last day or so.

Details here:

In particular, note the line 
  "The archive is not affected by this compromise!"
...which seems to me to indicate there's no need to get all paranoid
about trojaned packages and such.
