As a suggestion, it might be worth just going directly to the master
site in this case.  I don't know how often the mirrors update and if
you're going to use APT to automatically obtain any security updates on
a regular basis then, if the mirrors update slowly, it might turn out to
be faster to wget the debs given from the debian-security mailing list
announcements.  Of course, this all depends on how quickly the security
mirrors update themselves...
