Debian Security Advisory DSA-006-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Wichert Akkerman December 19, 2000


Package : zope Problem type : privilege escalation Debian-specific: no

Last week a Zope (security advisory was released which indicated Erik Enge found a problem in the way Zope calculates roles. In some situations Zope checked the wrong folder hierarchy which could cause it to grant local roles when it should not. In other words: users with privileges in one folder could gain privileges in another folder.

This has been fixed in version 2.1.6-5.3 by including the 2000-12-15 hotfix, and we recommend that you upgrade your zope package immediately.

wget url will fetch the file for you dpkg -i file.deb will install the referenced file.
