How to give user rights to wp-cron? (1 post)

    I have a cron job running on my site every hour. It triggers a function inside a plugin, which has the following piece of code:

    if ( ! current_user_can( 'manage_options' ))
    	wp_die( __('You do not have sufficient permissions to do this.') );
    }

    Since it's the wp-cron running this function, obviously the job fails at this point, as it has no such rights. How do I give wp-cron more rights to do stuff? Is it even possible?

    I can comment that out, but I don't think that's the best solution here from the security perspective.
