Installing security updates


Is there any easy way to installing only the security updates? 

My box maintaining strategy is, the least maintenance possible the 
better. E.g., I only want to upgrade the minimum set of packages. So of 
all the packages that I need to upgrade, I only want to upgrade those 
security updates. How can I do that? 

I did some searching, seems everyone talking about automated security 
updates [1], [2]. But I don't want it automated, I don't want to upgrade 
every packages and I don't want to subscribe to the security mailing 
lists just to get the security update packages list. So,

Is there any easy way? 
Will the approach work for Ubuntu as well?
