CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : Zope
SUMMARY   : Permission problems
DATE      : 2000-12-20 15:52:00
ID        : CLA-2000:365
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 4.2, 5.0, 5.1, 6.0

DESCRIPTION
Two hotfixes have been released that address security problems with Zope-2.1.x:
2000-21-15a: local roles computation. In some situations users with pivileges in one folder could gain the same privileges on another folder.

2000-12-18: image updating method. Users with DTML editing privileges could edit the raw data of a File or Image object via DTML, even though they did not have editing priveleges on the objects themselves.

Additionally, the so called POST bug was also fixed, where POST requests would interfere with each other.

SOLUTION
It is recommended that all Zope users upgrade to the updated packages.
