SMF 1.1.7 is certainly more secure than 1.1.6!

Either way, I think it's a great testimony to our security-oriented focus that we got these patches developed and out within 48 hours of first being notified of the issues.

Also, thank you to all our supporters, especially those that alert us when they see potential issues.

Hope that 1.1.7 is secure!  Glad whatever issues were found are being fixed though.
It must be, since it's the most current secure 1.1.x SMF software out so far. :P

That doesn't make it secure. It just means that it is the newest version of 1.1.x and no bugs have been found it in yet.

Those who say that something cannot be done should get out of the way of those who are willing to try.

Hmmm, I downloaded the patch link and the 1.7 fix but only got a message that either the files weren't the correct version or the files were corrupted. 

I get this a lot when I'm using the package manager to upload.  It's really a fun thing when it works.

If someone could log in as a user to my site, I promise to make you a moderator so you can take a look see what I mean.  I've constantly had stuff go wrong every time I've installed and this is the 3rd installation.  You'd think after being off work for 5 vacation days and having to reinstall 3 different times, I'd at least get one of the installs right!  Not yet!

Please don't think I'm complaining.  I'm just tired of failing and I REALLY, REALLY, WANT this to work!

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.  It's late; I'm going to bed and unfortunately, have to start back to work tomorrow.  Bye now,  Tiff.

Tiff, i'd strongly reccommend starting a topic in Install and Upgrade Help.  That will allow your issue to have its own venue for our support team to look at, instead of trying play post tag in this release topic where other discussion is going on. 

Thanks :)

Thanks for the update guys, installation was easy as :)

And also thanks for the link Deprecated. My forum is still relatively new, and we had our first spammer this morning before I upgraded to 1.1.7, so I'll check it out.

Thanks for the "piece-of-p**s" update, SMF. I got an influx of spammer users registering on my site over the past 24 hours. All of a sudden, after the update, they can't do jack.

Keep up the immense work, SMF.
