    Yup even security issues can crop up with auto update systems :)

    But...but...but... the WordPress auto-update features is touted as the end-all be-all of necessities. If a forum script doesn't have it, then it's not worth owning.

    All sarcasm aside, THIS is exactly why I don't recommend (nor use) an auto-update feature. Manual is preferred, but programatic that requires my intervention is almost as good. If an admin can't be troubled with keeping up (consists of checking on AND installing) updates to their chosen script, then they need to get out of the biz and find something else to do.

    All people need is really a 1-click update process. Not even fetching from the vendor's webspace, as long as you can upload that update file yourself.
