Title: SMF 2.0.3, 1.1.17 and 1.0.23 security patches released
Post by: emanuele on December 16, 2012, 05:05:30 PM
Dear users,

Simple Machines Forum has released a security patch with version numbers: SMF 1.0.23, SMF 1.1.17 and SMF 2.0.3.
A security issue has been identified in all versions and is fixed with this patch, therefore it is recommended to make sure you update your forums immediately to ensure your community is safe.
In addition to the security patch, a few bug fixes to SMF 2.0.2 are also included within the patch for 2.0.x.
The most relevant bug fix is an issue that will arise in few months with PayPal: starting on February 1, 2013 (https://www.x.com/content/bulletin-ipn-and-pdt-scripts-and-http-1-1) PayPal will only accept headers which comply with the HTTP 1.1 specification.

If you are running 2.0.2, you can update your forum to 2.0.3 using the 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".
You can also download the patch for 2.0.2 from the customize site: smf_patch_2.0.3.tar.gz patch, and install it using the package manager.

If you are running 1.1.16, you can update to 1.1.17 with the smf_patch_1.0.23_1.1.17.tar.gz patch, also using the package manager.
If you are running SMF 1.0.22, take into consideration that this will most likely be the last patch for this version of SMF, which is reaching its "end of life (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=472913.0)". You can update to 1.0.23 with the smf_patch_1.0.23_1.1.17.tar.gz patch, also using the package manager.

If you use older versions of SMF, you can upgrade with the full upgrade packages from the downloads page.
Please find the changelog for the latest release, as usual, on the downloads page as well:
http://download.simplemachines.org/
If you are having problems downloading the patch from the admin panel, you can download the package from the upgrades page here:
http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/
and install it like a mod.
Please refer also to the Online Manual for more details about:
* upgrading http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Upgrading
* updating http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Updating
* patching http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Patching

Please do not use this topic for support requests. You will get a much quicker and better response by posting in the relevant support board!


Regards,
Simple Machines Forum

Update: 17/12/2012: there is still some issues with the upgrades page and the language packs that are not yet updated...sorry for the trouble.

Update: 18/12/2012: now everything should be fixed!

If you don't have a notification about the update, please run the scheduled task "Fetch Simple Machines files".
Where should this option be hidden? Is it Administration Center » Maintenance » Forum Maintenance » Routine » Check all files against current versions?

This approach does not work. Tested in several forums.

That was at 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 also so that the update is displayed after about a week in the Admin Center.

Almost but not exactly: admin > maintenance > scheduled tasks > scheduled tasks
Then under the column "run now" select the box corresponding to "Fetch Simple Machines Files", and click the button "run now".

I never thought we'd seen another update in 2012. Things just became so incredibly quiet around here for so many months... But this is great and i'm glad to be proven wrong! :D I look forward to a more fruitful 2013 for the SMF community.

Words out to the entire world: The software still works! It really does! ;)

Great job, SMF team!

It was quick and painless too.

There are still 13 bugs which have never been fixed for SMF 1.1.x since several releases! :( I don't know if it's worth updating my forums at this point. Why not fix that small bunch of remaining bugs and release the ultimate Gold/Platinum version of SMF 1.1.x?

Also, i'm trying to download the changelog:

Well, I really liked a years without security issues and I hope I'll never have to make another patch available! O:)

There are still 13 bugs which have never been fixed for SMF 1.1.x since several releases! :(
Is there any security issue within those bugs?
Since historically SMF has always fixed only security issues with patches, is not very likely a patch to fix bugs in 1.1.
Anyway, since a patch is a mod, anyone is free to fix those issues and provide the patch somewhere.

I don't know if it's worth updating my forums at this point. Why not fix that small bunch of remaining bugs and release the ultimate Gold/Platinum version of SMF 1.1.x?
Do you mean you are not sure if it is worth updating to 1.1.17?
I now don't know if all the work involved in doing a release is worth if people think bugs are more important than security fixes...

Also, i'm trying to download the changelog:

But i get the error: Sorry but you can not directly download an archived file without first going through the Simple Machines website.

Changelog download seems broken...

Isn't the subject line explicative enough?

Post by: emanuele on December 18, 2012, 05:47:37 AM
Because micro releases (2.0.x etc.) are only for security fixes (and in that case very few required fixes to features that are badly "broken").
Minor and major releases are for features. And "a couple" of hooks are a feature, not a security fix. ;)

Odd that this forum still hasn't upgraded.  :o
Even odder is that this so called fixed security issue has been around since the release of 2.0.2 and it has taken a year to find and fix. What has been done in the past year to fix the known bugs? I realize security is priority for you people but what good is a secure program that is broken? Seems to me fixing the bugs would be a priority also. :o

nope... that's not how releases work, Road Rash.

Once a gold release is done, anyone can release patches to fix minor things which may or may not be actual bugs.
The only thing that we release, after a final is security updates or fixes for major issues.

And I would hardly say that anything in 2.0 is currently "broken".

What's been done in the last year?   Lots of work on 2.1, which is in Alpha and will be the next release towards which we are working.

I would really like it if, after the security patch is applied.... my forums on all my sites wouldn't read "Copyright 2011".

It makes my sites look like there's been nothing done to the software since then. At least the LAST patch (before this one) said 2012!! 

Just a minor gripe.   Nothing big.  Just sayin.  Perhaps SMF could actually get something... as simple as the copyright year... correct?  Would be nice.

I'm impressed how important this BS (a stupid year declared in the footer of a page) could be to some of you...really.
Next patch will just be to increase the year in the copyright string, so that you will be happy.

Uploaded to 2.0.3 with no issues, thanks for the patch. I'm sure it wouldn't be very wise to publicly announce exactly what the security issues were in the earlier versions, but I am curious to know. Can someone possibly pm me with what the security issue was, and what this patch updates? (besides the aforementioned paypal issue)

Thanks.

My point was that it read 2012 and now it reads 2011....and yes, it really DOES matter to me...that it appears to my guests as if my sites haven't been updated since 2011.  The question is...why wouldn't that matter to YOU?  It should.

Yeah, it should likely read 2012, rather than 2011, but if your members are focusing on that detail, aka BS, they are focusing on the wrong thing. Your boards also show dates and times (down to the second) and I would hope your guests view that rather than the copyright year of the software you are using. :)

It's an easy fix if you want to update it manually. From what I read in previous threads on the subject, as long as you don't change the SMF © , and  Simple Machines part, you can change to 2012 if you want.

The part at the top can not be removed, even the license says against it. (Credits)
And yes, the footer could be removed, but usually support is not given to forums who do remove it.

I really urge this discussion, if it must be held, to be moved elsewhere, please. :)

I agree that if the year or the license is to be discussed, it can be discussed elsewhere. I just checking up because the non-updated year (together with the copyright in the footer) and whether that can be changed or not was made an issue while the license say it can be changed. Removal is another issue not raised here but merely to stress the earlier point. ;)

Ahmad,

You can totally change or remove the footer... But you can not change the copyright year of the SMF software. As I said, that is a legal statement held by simple machines.
For example, you cold not change it to SMF (c) 1999 nor can you change it to SMF (c) 2013
Those changes are reserved for the individual or compan who holds the copyright.
You could change it to my site (c) 2012 if you like, though...

With no doubt I agree on this. But the main issue that was on my mind is what appear to users i.e. in the footer not in the software. So hopefully it is clear to all now. :)

Try to download it from this page (http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/) and decompress it on your computer.
If it works, try uploading it from the admin panel.
If you get the same error try to zip and upload it again.
If none of the above works, unzip the package and upload it from ftp...

Unless you change it SMF's copyright is only valid until Dec 31, 2011 as stated in SMF's legal statement as you are not declaring copyright for 2012. This needs to be declared and changed yearly (January 1, (year) or prior to year end, to make it legally valid. Copyright declaration must remain current or it is nul and void.

Frizzle,   multiple years is stupid...

While we all agree that it probably should be changed, some people are obsessing over it AND spreading incorrect information.

here's the correct summary.
1- Copyright does not EXPIRE in the year stated. Copyright STARTS in that year and is valid for 70 years afterwards (of there abouts)
2- You can change your footer and remove the smf copyright, etc... but you can NOT (legally) change the smf copyright statement.

Fist, some feedback:
I have a clean install of SMF 2.0.2, no mods. When I went to Admin > Package Manager, the update was listed, but when I clicked on the "install now", I received a 404 error from my domain.

I was able to install the update manually.

Secondly, A Question:
I had modified the nav menu in the file "Sources > Sub.php" This file was overwritten in the update. Can I simply overwrite this file with the previous version (that I had modified) without compromising security? I did try to just edit the new file, but was having difficultly. Dropping in the previous file works fine, just want to make sure this is not leaving some security hole open.

Dave, I don't know why it would have given you an error message like that...

As for subs.php...   Why would it have overwritten the file? The updates were to individual files, not to replace the whole thing.... unless you downloaded the update and overwrite the file on your own, manually...

However, no... you should not use the old version.

Thanks for your reply, Kindred.

First, the folder "Sourses" was part of the update package I downloaded from here: (the small package) http://download.simplemachines.org/index.php?thanks;filename=smf_2-0-3_update.zip

Your answer seems a little contradictory to me.

You're telling me that the file "Sub.php" was not a target of the security update, but that I should not use the version from v. 2.0.2

That is what seems contradictory?

So, I'm not sure how your update affected that file, but you do mention you did it manually.

Yes, manually updated, as I said above, with the package I linked to above. Which did include the "Sources" folder.

However, really, this is an announcement topic not meant for support. Maybe this topic should really be read-only, eh?

Well, I don't really think this is a support question. It is a technical question relating to this update to determine if the file "Subs.php" can be used from v.2.0.2 without compromising the security update.  Looking at the file you linked to, it would appear that is is indeed fine to use the older Subs.php file.

If you are actually involved in the coding of the software, this will be a yes or no answer. If you are not, please, lets just wait for one of them to respond.

The file you linked to is the whole kit and kaboodle. If you look at the date of Subs.php in the Sources folder, you'll see it's dated 6/6/2011. If you used the file you linked to, you are essentially wiping out any mods/edits you've made since 2.0.2. If you look at the link I provided, you'll see the changes made from 2.0.2 to 2.0.3 of which Sources/Subs.php was not affected.

basically, you updated the wrong way.  There was no need for you to replace all the files with new copies.  That is the entire purpose of the patch package...   to make file edits without requiring an overwrite.

Do note, if you had any mods, they will have been removed when you did the update in the manner that you did.

I meant no offense. As I also stated above, the security update through the software was unsuccessful. The update package I installed was all that I could find.

If Subs.php is not part of the security update, then great, you have answered my question.

I would have been happy if the update worked from within SM via the Package Manager. Unfortunately, in my case, it did not work.

I'm not blaming anyone for anything. I'm just relating my experience with applying this patch. I am new to this software, but not new to web applications.

I used the official manual to find how to update manually, and followed the steps exactly. Perhaps there should be a link to the security update on the download page, so that when someone follows the manual, the file that they should use will be there.

That is likely a problem with Apache's "mod_security" extension, which seems to have problems with ";id=" in URLs. It's actually pretty easy to get around that for now, so you can install the patch. When you get the "403 forbidden" error, look for ";id=" in the URL and change it to "&id=" instead, then hit enter. This should allow you to bypass the rules, and install the package. After you've done that, you can either try disabling mod_security via .htaccess (see the manual (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Mod_security_-_Having_problems_with_mod_security) for more info), or ask your host to disable it for you.

I am getting the following error:

You cannot download or install new packages because the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable!


I looked up the Packages directory,
but all files inclusive the Patch file are set to 0777.

In the Patch file I found just only these 2 files:

List files in package
Files in archive smf_patch_2.0.3.tar.gz:

    package-info.xml (1265 bytes)
    smf_2-0-3_patch.xml (13645 bytes)


Is that correct ?
I already disabled the SEF engine of PortaMX,
but maybe it is a permission thing with the PHP-User or Website owner
for these files.

I recently changed to a new hoster and there I have the possibility to
set files for ownership to PHP-User or web-account owner...

Hmm,
how can I run these 2 XML files if I upload them via FTP ?

Many thanks.

Okay,
at my site a
/temp
directory was missing in the
/Packages
folder.

So the update went through now...

but at the bottom of my forum it still says:

SMF 2.0.2 | SMF © 2011, Simple Machines

So why is there no
SMF 2.0.3 ?

It should say 2.0.3. The upgrade might not working right. Try to uninstall and delete the package that you have. Then get a new package and reinstall.

Hi emanuele.  I did the above but I still get this Forbidden message below on a white page whether I click "update your forum" from my main Administration Center or when I click "this patch (click here to install)" from the Package Manager.  I'm trying to get 2.0.3 from 2.0.2.

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /forum/index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

PS  It doesn't have [nofollow] on the white page.  That showed up when I copied it here.


mod edit - removed link.

That is likely a problem with Apache's "mod_security" extension, which seems to have problems with ";id=" in URLs. It's actually pretty easy to get around that for now, so you can install the patch. When you get the "403 forbidden" error, look for ";id=" in the URL and change it to "&id=" instead, then hit enter. This should allow you to bypass the rules, and install the package. After you've done that, you can either try disabling mod_security via .htaccess (see the manual (http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Mod_security_-_Having_problems_with_mod_security) for more info), or ask your host to disable it for you.

Thanks Oldiesmann but there is no ";id=" in the "403 forbidden" URL.

I read the manual that you posted and it looks like it would be easiest to have my host disable mod_security.  Should that be my next step?  Once my host disables mod_security should I be able to get the 2.0.3 package from my Administration Center?

Yes, if they're willing to disable it for you, then it should go through. mod_security is usually the cause of random "403 Forbidden" errors.

As double check, try cleaning your browser cache and downloading the file again.

That' really strange, I tested the patch on two quite picky servers that always give me issues with packages, but that patch installed without a problem... ???
Strange. That worked. I used http://download.simplemachines.org/ Small Update before and didn't work.

Hi guys, first off i installed 2.02 to 2.03 update in a few seconds from the package manager, seem to work perfect, thanks guys

I read in the changelog there are a fix for "intermittent session verification failures" but there are not more info about

In my case, i was getting random "session expired"  error, i went crazy triying to fix it (and did not get it) randomly my session expired 3 mins next to create it, sometimes 5, sometimes few seconds... and so

So is this 2.03 fix referred to this problem?

Thanks!

mmm...so the package doesn't work for you.
You can chose:
* manual edits ( http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/ )
* small update ( http://download.simplemachines.org/ ) but since you have theme changes you may want to upload only the Sources directory instead of the whole package.

TBH it depends on the issue.
The fix applied will fix some but not all the issues related to the sessions.
The only thing you can do is try and if it doesn't fix yours then ask for support in the appropriate board. ;)

Oh, yes, I could make the manual editing, why not?, but god, the packages system never worked for me. I had those errors every time I tried any package. So, any fix to the problematic packages system? Because, for whatever reason, it doesn't work with my installations in the past (yes, in plural).

* small update ( http://download.simplemachines.org/ ) but since you have theme changes you may want to upload only the Sources directory instead of the whole package.

As far as that download is for 2.x version and I'm sticky with 1.1.16 (before I choose to do manual edits if there is not fix to packages system) that is not a valid option, I think..., is it?

I don't think is a good idea to mix things and I don't plan to make the swith from 1.1.x to 2.x yet (I know I should, but I'm not).

I'd really would like to fix packages system.

Not sure where to post this... I have backed up my forum, and through the "Package Manager" I updated the patch.. said it was successfully uploaded... when I clicked install this mod... I got this message.

"Error in Package Installation
At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF." 

I had version 2.02  can you let me know this reason for this error.. ?

during the test run, this was the results..

Execute Modification                    ./index.php                      Test successful

You already applied the fix for the intermittent session verification errors.
The how to proceed is another thing: you can apply the patch ignoring the errors (and then you can verify the changes are in place accordingly to the patch, or you can revert your changes and apply the patch.

Issue. I went ahead and scheduled the update. I was notified by email of it's successful installation. Now, I find that all of the mods that I had downloaded and installed onto my site are no longer installed. When I attempt to re-install them from my package manager, it tells me that the directory isn't writeable. I've had this issue for a while and no one seems to be able to figure it out. GoDaddy says that it's not a hosting issue so, they can't help me. No one on here has been able to help me address it and until recently, I've just been willing to limp along without downloading anything else. Now, I want my mods back. Any thoughts as to why the update might have uninstalled my mods?

We're very glad to hear that your upgrade process went smoothly :) Thank you for stopping by and posting your feedback!

Well said, my sentiments exactly... I see some newbies have made sort of a bad move by not examining the instructions in the package manager message more closely. Normally you won't want to actually do a manual download & install unless it becomes absolutely necessary when you have a number of third party mods installed, and even if you do, it's essential to uninstall them all first... I have quite a number of mods and have been running SMF several years now and learned the hard way about updates, it's normally very safe to use the embedded link in the message itself and this time is no exception...

One of the few times that you'll need to grab something from the Downloads page would be a major version upgrade (ie. SMF 1.x -> SMF 2.0.x.)

I update the version of the repair_settings.php file that I keep on hand after an update to make sure I can do that with the latest version available if necessary (usually not)...

I'm in the market for some help with a new paying project idea that I have, a new boardgame module involving dice... if you are interested PM me or visit my site...

I use an SEO mod called "SMF Packs". Should I first delete this mod in order to make an update to smf 2.0.3.?

Did you get the notification in the admin panel?
Did you try to click on the "update your forum" link?

If you use the patch through Package Manager, it's just like installing any other modification. You should not need to uninstall any other modifications.

Hello community,

I am a new administrator in the field SMF because our administrator has died tragically.
So it is very helpful that SMF is relatively easy to use and the update was quick and easy.

I hope for the future that further updates are just as easy and I can keep on running our forum.

Thanks for that.

Where should this option be hidden? Is it Administration Center » Maintenance » Forum Maintenance » Routine » Check all files against current versions?
Almost but not exactly: admin > maintenance > scheduled tasks > scheduled tasks
Then under the column "run now" select the box corresponding to "Fetch Simple Machines Files", and click the button "run now".

I did this... no change. What did I do wrong? It's still RC2

Um... RC2? That would imply you need to upgrade...

you can not use the patch package to upgrade from any RC version. You will have to use the large upgrade from the downloads section and then reinstall all of your mods (also note, themes for 2.0RC2 will likely have issues if you try to run them on 2.0.x)

And on top of that, most mods for 2.0 RC4+ won't work on 2.0 RC2 themes either.


The advice to update 'fetch SM files' is nothing to do with actually updating or not, it is simply to update the information inside SMF's admin panel about what is the most recent version of SMF, as in whether to notify you about whether an update is required. It won't *do* the update.

Please open a support topic in suitable board (But first search for the issue)

Our forum is currently 2.0.2 and the package manager stopped working in the last upgrade from 1.1.12 to 2.0.2. All our mods have been installed manually. Is the 2.0.3 manual upgrade possible?

Also considering a re-install to 2.0.3 to get package manager working and complete the latest upgrade. Is there a major security issue in using 2.0.2 for the short-term?
