Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory
Package name: Zope Date: December 19th, 2000 Advisory ID: MDKSA-2000:086 Affected versions: 7.1, 7.2
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.
