there never was an official security mirror for the asia region. SAKURA
Internet provided the hardware and the hosting, so we now have resources
in the asia region go give the asia region better RTT for
security.debian.org. Up to now the asia region needed to get security
updates from security.debian.org from anywhere in the world, which was
either US or EU (two hosts per continent). Now they have one for their
own continent.
