                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory

Package name:           Zope
Date:                   February 26th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:025

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1

Problem Description:

A new Hotfix for Zope has been released that fixes a very important security issue that affects all versions of Zope prior to and including 2.3.1b1. Users can use through-the-web scripting capabilities on a Zope site to view and assign class attributes to ZClasses, possibly allowing them to make inappropriate changes to ZClass instances. As well, perceived security problems with the ObjectManager, PropertyManager and PropertySheet classes have been fixed as well. It is highly recommended that all Linux-Mandrake users using Zope upgrade to these new packages immediately.

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.
