Re: [opensuse-security] Software Updater never asks for password

The Plasma Software Update desktop tool on 13.1 never asks for a
password when it updates everything. Isn't this a security violation?

We configured it that installing the openSUSE supplied online updates
is possible without a root password.

All other software operations (installing packages, removing packages, etc)
should ask for the administrator password.
