I don't think so, I don't see any method by which these blocks of code could
or would be used to access a webpage.

It sounds to me like this "code" might be a pgp key or signature.  Even if
it is malicious code then chances are pretty good that it isn't going to run
on FreeBSD.  I don't think there are too many e-mail distributed viruses for
Unix like systems, I can't think of a single one.  If you're really curious
then install vm ware and run the code inside there, it should provide a very
secure sandbox.
