Simple Machines Forum is pleased to announce the next security update for the SMF 2.0 product line.
To ensure the continued security of your forum it is advised that you update to SMF 2.0.5 without delay. These vulnerabilities do not
impact the SMF 1.1.X branch.
If you are running 2.0.4, you can update your forum to 2.0.5 using the built in package manager. You should see the upgrade notification in the admin panel and in the package manager, allowing you to download and install seamlessly. If you don't have a notification about the update, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files" from the administration panel (Admin -> Maintenance -> Scheduled Tasks). You can also download the update for 2.0.4 from the customize site (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/
): smf_patch_2.0.5.tar.gz, and install it using the package manager.
If you use an older version of SMF, you can upgrade it with the full upgrade packages from the downloads page
. Note that this will remove all installed mods! It is recommended to use the patch as described above.
As always you can find more instructions on our wiki:upgradingpatching
