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
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
rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.
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.
