Installation and Update sources are now handled the same way, so normal
Installation will install also the latest security update, or the updater
will install new / changed dependencies of packages.

Because it is not cryptographically signed. This means that you cannot ensure
that an attacker has modified it (on the ftp site) to install exploits your machine
or similar.

Well zen-updater can be deinstalled just fine, you likely want to deinstall
zmd too... (which might have more dependencies.)
