All of the bugs which are known can be accessed using http://bugs.debian.org. The precise search that you will have to perform depends greatly on the software versions from Debian which you actually have installed on your device.
But briefly, for each of the packages installed, you can check for a search like:
and then exclude bugs which are fixed or absent in the version that you searched for.
All of that said, Debian 5.0 (Lenny) has been EOLed for well over three years now, and likely has known remote root exploits.
