 Not that I know of.  Take for example wget.  There was a security
 update with release 1.8.2-8; testing has 1.8.2-5.  DSA-209-1.  AFAICS
 the version in testing is still vulnerable.

 I think the first step is documenting the vulnerabilities.

 The easiest way for archieving this is going thru all the DSAs,
 checking the version they affect and checking the version in testing,
 then checking the reported bugs and filing bugs tagged "security,
 sarge" (or tagging existing ones) and setting the severity to critical.

 Who wants to help?
