Zope ZClass Modification Local DoS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 10702


The remote web server contains an application server that is prone to a denial of service issue.


The remote web server is Zope < 2.2.5. Such versions allow any Zope user to create a denial of service by modifying Zope data structures, thus rendering the site unusable.

*** Since Nessus solely relied on the version number of the server,
*** consider this a false positive if the hotfix has already been applied.


Upgrade to Zope 2.2.5 or later.
