Remove WordPress update notification on normal user dashboard

It is better to disable core related notification from the normal user dashboard for better security.

add_action('after_setup_theme','remove_core_updates');
function remove_core_updates()
{
	if(! current_user_can('update_core')){
		add_action('init', create_function('$a',"remove_action( 'init', 'wp_version_check' );"),2);
		add_filter('pre_option_update_core','__return_null');
		add_filter('pre_site_transient_update_core','__return_null');
	}
