                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory

Package name:           Zope
Date:                   December 19th, 2000
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2000:086

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2

Problem Description:

A potential security issue exists in versions of Zope up to and including 2.2.4. This 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 a File or Image object via DTML though they did not have editing privileges on the objects themselves. This update replaces the previous Zope update noted in MDKSA-2000:083.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of the downloaded package. You can do this with the command:
rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG signature is performed automatically for you.

To upgrade automatically, use <<MandrakeUpdate>>.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one of our FTP server mirrors and uprade with "rpm -Uvh package_name".

You can download the updates directly from:

Or try one of the other mirrors listed at:


Updated packages are available in the "updates/[ver]/RPMS/" directory. For example, if you are looking for an updated RPM package for Linux-Mandrake 7.1, look for it in "updates/7.1/RPMS/". Updated source RPMs are available as well, but you generally do not need to download them.

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to update, so if you want an immediate upgrade, please use one of the two above-listed mirrors.
