CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : Zope
SUMMARY   : Remote vulnerability
DATE      : 2001-03-02 12:52:00
ID        : CLA-2001:382
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0

DESCRIPTION
The Zope authors have released a new hotfix that addresses a vulnerability with ZClasses. A user with through-the-web scripting capabilities on a Zope site can view and assign class attributes to ZClasses, possibly allowing them to make inappropriate changes to ZClass instances.
This hotfix also fixes problems in the ObjectManager, PropertyManager, and PropertySheet classes related to mutability of method return values which could be perceived as a security problem.

SOLUTION
It is recommended that all Zope users upgrade this software.
