Theoretically security.d.o does support security upgrades for testing
but in practice those happen via unstable. To get security upgrades
from unstable and everything else from testing, I pin testing >
unstable and use a script to pin security upgrades based on the output
of debsecan.

The script is available in this mail:

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=725934#20

Needs this setup also:

ln -s /var/lib/debsecan/apt_preferences /etc/apt/preferences.d/debsecan
