It is not feasible to fully support some Debian packages through the releases life cycle. The debian-security-support package provides the check-support-status tool that helps to warn the administrator about installed packages whose security support is limited or has to prematurely end.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, debian-security-support version 2016.05.09+nmu1~deb7u1 updates the list of packages with restricted support in Wheezy LTS. In particular, this version also includes a new feature to notify the user about oncoming end-of-lifes.
We recommend you to install the debian-security-support and run check-support-status to verify the status of installed packages. Please, refer to the check-support-status (1) man page for more information about how to use it.
For Debian 6
Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in debian-security-support version 2016.05.09+nmu1~deb7u1
