Security updates are available via the security archive. The stable
release updates are a collection of mostly these security updates...

Note that the contents of the security archive isn't blocked by the
ftp-masters in any way that I'm aware of. I'm also confident that the
ftp-masters blocking on the stable release updates is only temporary and
will require less work in the future...

I don't expect any problems with the stable release updates by the way
as very capable persons have already taken over...
