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 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". 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!


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

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".

No need to download anything. Simply go to your package manager and install the upgrade when prompted.

@Lord it should be a caching issue. Sooner the new patches should appear.

ETA: anyway, you can view the manual edits at this address: http://custom.simplemachines.org/upgrades/index.php?action=upgrade;file=smf_patch_1.0.23_1.1.17.tar.gz;smf_version=1.1.16
