Security updates vs. Sarge and Sid??

The posts that arrive from the Debian Security list show package updates
for Woody.  How does one ensure that these same updates are applied when
running a mixed system (testing & stable)?

For instance:
Recently a post for mysql-common indicated an  update was available.  If
I run apt-cache policy mysql-common I get the following output:

  Installed: 4.0.13-3
  Candidate: 4.0.13-3
  Version Table:
     4.0.14-1 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages
 *** 4.0.13-3 0
        990 http://ftp.de.debian.org testing/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     3.23.49-8.5 0
        500 http://security.debian.org stable/updates/main Packages
     3.23.49-8 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org stable/main Packages

So, I have the latest version installed from testing.  Does that include
the changes from security.debian.org?
