they do post announcments to BugTraq, at least every advisory i get
from debian-security-announce is cross posted to BugTraq too.

i am a bit curious about the recent traceroute bug, (traceroute -g 1
-g 1 segfaults) pretty much every other major dist has released an
advisory and update for this, but debian appears not to have (unless i
missed it).  a fixed traceroute package does exist in proposed-updates
however.  (its been there for awhile now) same thing with tmpreaper
(aka tmpwatch) (even though thats only a DoS solved easily by disk
file quotas)
