Ubuntu 5.10 : zope2.8 vulnerability (USN-229-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 20772
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionZope did not deactivate the file inclusion feature 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, or execute arbitrary Zope code.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected zope2.8 and / or zope2.8-sandbox packages.
