Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : Zope (MDKSA-2001:080)
High Nessus Plugin ID 61915
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA new Zope hotfix is available that fixes a problem with DTML scripting as described in the README.txt of Hotfix_2001-09-28 :
'The issue involves the fmt attribute of dtml-var tags. Without this correction, Zope does not check security access to methods invoked through fmt. This issue could allow partially trusted users with enough knowledge of Zope to call, in a limited way, methods they would not otherwise be allowed to access.'
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
