et voilà is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

Just a thought: what about security and the in network updating? I've always been wary of upgrade notifications in the past on LW: what certifies you there is no false signal spreading letting you know that a real new version is available? I believe this is even more important in the new update schema: you could be induce to spread a LW version containing a trogan or any other worm/virus run by the LW installer following the in-network download? The old schema was redirecting you to the download adress, so you were sure of the source, what about now? Playing a bit of the devil's advocate right now, but a vulnaribility is the last thing LW needs right now, especially at the speed the in-network updates can spread in the LW subnet. Anyway, you guys probably found a technique to do it safely, but I feel bringing the possible issue could at least put the things clear.
