Dear users,

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:
upgrading
patching

Support is available to all users for this upgrade, but it will only be provided in the support board: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=147.0
Please do not use this topic for support related inquiries. 

Charter Members can file a ticket for any assistance or assisted upgrades through the help desk.

Thank you,
SMF Team

Time to see how many people think this is related to the recent security breach.

Not sure if your post was intended as flamebait, but either way: No, it's not related.
That should already become clear the moment you read that announcement. :)

Liam. I predict a few people will think they are related its human nature.  But they will be incorrect as we all know.

It wasn't meant to be flame bait, and I know it's not related. It's pretty clear, but there were still people in that thread that didn't manage to understand it regardless of how clear it was!

Ah, good :)
Yes, there were. And I'm afraid, as Runic points out, there always will be. :(

But... That won't stop SMF from making awesome releases when deemed necessary of course! :)

Thanks for your support!
