Zope Malformed XML RPC Request Path Disclosure

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 11234


The remote web server contains an application server that is prone to an information disclosure attack.


There is a minor security problem in all releases of Zope prior to version 2.5.1b1 - they reveal the installation path when an invalid XML RPC request is sent.
