Subscribe to debian-security, then you'll always know about
security fixes.  I see 15 updates for sarge in the last month,
but many of them will be things you're not running (dropbear,
phpbb2, tkdiff...) so of course you'll not see them.

There was a big fix for the kernel in December, so you should at
least check that! :)
