Synopsis:          Zope Hotfix package available
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2000:135-03
Issue date:        2000-12-20
Updated on:        2000-12-20
Product:           Red Hat Powertools

1. Topic:

A new Zope Hotfix package is available.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Powertools 6.1 and 6.2 - noarch
Red Hat Powertools 7.0 - noarch

3. Problem description:

The issue involves incorrect protection of a data updating method on Image and File objects. Because the method was not correctly protected, it was possible for users with DTML editing privileges to update the raw data of aprivileges File or Image object via DTML, though they did not have editing on the objects themselves.

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]
