well, since almost NONE of those steps have anything at all to do with WordPress, most of that information is portable between any system and is fairly decent advice.

As for the WordPress specific stuff -- SMF has no need to that. We take our security very seriously as, AFAIK, SMF doe snot have any security holes. If any are discovered, ou developers quickly make a package manager patch release to fix the issue.

So...    for security - keep updated.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
