This seems like a really stupid question but if I am on SMF 2.0.2 does the SMF 2.0.2 Update update my security or does it update my forum version to SMF 2.0.2. Which would obviously not work since I am already using SMF 2.0.2.
Basically, I have, all of a sudden received 130 posts in Polish about Viagra. So I thought I'd check out if there were any security updates available and low and behold there is,........'SMF 2.0.2 and 1.1.16 critical security patches released'. On uploading and installing it I get an error message stating it is not compatible with the forum version I am running, 'SMF 2.0.2'
Am I being stupid, and if so any ideas how to deal with my apparent security breach, can I block an IP address for posting, or are there any other patches I can install.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
