As described in issue 113114, the online update system does not verify a
downloaded file. In fact it starts the update installation without any
verification of the downloaded file.

This should be considered as high security risk and I suggest to disable
automatic download and installation of updates until this is fixed.

additional info regarding issue 113114:

Once a wrong file has been downloaded (in case of issue 113114 it was the "File
not found" html page), the update mechanism will not request a correct file from
the server, even if the server is reconfigured to deliver the correct file. You
need to restart search for updates manually to trigger the new download.

This behaviour is logical, assuming that we get a correct file for download, but
should be reconsidered when we change the download mechanism.
