There is a page listing all security bugs:

And a quick hack to extract only the bugs for installed packages is at 
http://www.sfritsch.de/debian/list-bts-security (uses 
apt-show-versions and libwww-perl). Probably it would be nice to add 
some functionality to only show the differences from the last run...
