The website has a nice list of security advisories:
http://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/security/advisories/

Users should be able to subscribe for new advisories via email.

Not sure if there's an actual demand for that - for the release
engineers, there's an internal security mailing list, and users usually
don't care. However, it might be trivial to implement this via the
Silverstripe notification feature which sends an e-mail everytime the
page is updated; alternatively via RSS.

Can you maybe chat with Cloph who knows Silverstripe best if there's an
easy way to automate this?

I tried to take a look at this but couldn't find a hint about where they are stored (page content). It isn't unimaginable that they are hidden in a protected table or whatever. Can I get access to this place to see whether I can do this or not? Of course, if it is not a problem.

With where are the advisories stored, I meant in the database or server. I don't have access to the server myself so don't know where to check for new content.

It's a regular website on our main CMS instance, but there's no external
access to the database. What would you need concretely?
