Any automated system is a security risk. That's the wrong question; the
right question is "are the risks worth it *to you*?"

Automatic upgrades work fine for me, but then I'm willing to accept the
risk that something might get hosed. It's never happened, but it could.
Backups, hashes/signatures, and a good disaster recovery plan are your
friends. :)
