Debian Security Advisory DSA-007-1                                                               Wichert Akkerman

Package        : zope
Problem type   : insufficient protection
Debian-specific: no
A busy week for the Zope team: on Monday another security alert was released revealing a potential problem found by Peter Kelly. This problem involved incorrect protection of data updating for Image and File objects: any user with DTML editing privileges could update the File or Image object data directly.

This has been fixed in version 2.1.6-5.4 by including the 2000-12-19 hotfix, and we recommend that you upgrade your zope package immediately.
