script for security update notification

I'm thinking of writing a script but I am hoping that someone else has
beaten me to the punch. Perhaps someone has seen something that will do

1) Check the Debian security announcement list.
2) Compare new announcements to the local package database.
3) If vulnerable packages installed, send an 'I need updated' email to
an address defined by the SysAdmin.

Anyone ever seen such a beast? I've searched the archives of this list
and not found any reference to anything along these lines.
