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

Low Nessus Plugin ID 27893


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


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.


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