Hallo Luke,

My question is this - are there any security risks to adding this command to a cron job, and having it execute say, once every 12 hours. Any and all input appreciated

is it a risk if you do it manually? see? ;-)

=> at least with a manual run you can see what happends, an automated update goes without visual see-ing of what happends... So in that way automated updates are a bigger risk in security then manual runs.
