Ubuntu 5.10 : zope2.8 vulnerability (USN-317-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Zope did not deactivate the 'raw' command when exposing
RestructuredText functionalities to untrusted users. A remote user
with the privilege of editing Zope webpages with RestructuredText
could exploit this to expose arbitrary files that can be read with the
privileges of the Zope server.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected zope2.8 and / or zope2.8-sandbox packages.

Risk factor :
