Sorry for this...
Short answer: they are different, and the ressemblance is only coincidental.
Each lines indicate an URL and a distribution.
http://http.debian.net/ is a mirror of the Debian archive. The wheezy-updates
distribution is there to together with wheezy, wheezy-backports, jessie, sid,
etc. It contains the packages that will be part of the next point update. This
inlcudes security updates, but not immediately after their release.
http:/security.debian.org/ is not a section of the Debian archive, it is an
archive on its own. If I remember correctly, the rationale for using a
separate archive is that for a quick diffusion of security updates, it was
better to avoid the lag caused by the mirroring of the regular archive. For
wheezy, the distribution to pick is wheezy/updates.
Both lines are really needed.
Have a nice day,
