Just create the file /etc/apt/preferences containing:
Pin: release l=Debian-Security
This will cause apt to prefer the security version of any program it upgrades.
If you want to switch to the secure version when you have already installed
the testing/unstable version, just change the number above to 1001 while you
do an apt-get upgrade.
Read apt_preferences(5) for more information.
