There are no security updates per se for packages in sarge, but if you
run a mixed system you can still pull security updates from the stable

That said, I don't know how much of an issue it is. For the kernel in
particular, sarge doesn't lag too much when a new kernel comes out, so
unless the problem is in the packaging (rather than the upstream source)
tracking sarge seems relatively sensible for most installations.
