Software update should not run on any logon except...

The automatic update is a great tool.   However, on a regular user account, it can be clicked to run, and when it does, it asks if new dependency files should be included in the update.  I think that allowing dependency files may be a potential security breach.  

In fact, why should any user be allowed to run this application. I believe it should be only those users who are in the sudo or root groups.

What is your take on this?
