Summary09879: Update message is displayed even if you don't have the permission to update

When an update is available the message "...Click here to use ComfortUpdate or to download it." is displayed to every user.

If the user have not the right to see/edit the parameters, and if (s)he clicks on the link,, then (s)he goes to a blank page with no error message.

Additional Information

As it is a "security-related" subject, I think the version and build number should be displayed to the minimum users (only super-admin?).

TagsNo tags attached.

What have been decided is that update message for stable releases should be shown to any users, so they can warn an admin that an update is available and that he should update.

I would recommend that there be an option to control the viability of update notifications, at least delineating between all users and users with permissions to install updates.

If I have many users, I do not want to be repeatedly pestered to install an update that I already made plans to install.
