(1) Rails and Ruby was virtually unheard of until 2007-2008 and definitely was not in mainstream use until that time.

(2) This vulnerability has nothing to do with "cryptographic key"; it is related to the fact that default YAML parser allows serializing/deserializing and executing arbitrary Ruby code (including objects) and ActiveSupport didn't properly sanitize the input.

Sorry to hear that, but you are a 0.01% minority. Almost all mail that is coming from ADSL or cable netblocks is spam. I also have run my mail server for many years but I run it on a colocated server, and I've always (and I suspect many other admins) blocked everything coming directly from ADSL. Sorry, but the time for setup is long gone, get a cheap VPS and be done with it.

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

Working...
