Comment (by dd32):

 > This change will not help plugin security updates though, as they will
 still only be checked every 12 hours (Even if the background update
 callback is kicked off more often than that) as wp_update_plugins() has a
 12hour timeout on it. We could reduce that timeout to 1hour for cron tasks
 though perhaps.

 [attachment:27772.2.diff] does this, if `wp_update_plugins()` is running
 within cron, we expect it to make a new request, so it drops the timeout
 to 0.
