Debian Security Advisory DSA-043-2 [email protected] Martin Schulze
April 26, 2001

Packages : zope
Vulnerability : several
Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Fixed version : zope 2.1.6-9

This is an addition to DSA 043-1 which fixes several vulnerabilities
in Zope. Something went wrong so it has to be corrected. The
previous security release 2.1.6-7 has two severe problems:

  1. zope 2.1.6-7 erronously included Hotfix 2000-10-02 (a fix for a
    vulnerability, which does only affect Zope 2.2.0 and later). The
    inclusion of this Hotfix completely broke the authentification,
    which rendered zope 2.1.6-7 practically unusable.

    The Hotfix 2000-10-02 is removed in 2.1.6-9.

  2. The Hotfix 2000-10-11 in zope 2.1.6-7 was non-functional, leaving
    the package vulnerable to the possible exploit fixed by this

    Hotfix 2000-10-11 "ObjectManager subscripting"

    The issue involves the fact that the 'subscript notation' that can
    be used to access items of ObjectManagers (Folders) did not
    correctly restrict return values to only actual sub items. This
    made it possible to access names that should be private from DTML
    (objects with names beginning with the underscore '_' character).
    This could allow DTML authors to see private implementation data
    structures and in certain cases possibly call methods that they
    shouldn't have access to from DTML.

    Hotfix 2000-10-11 is fixed in 2.1.6-9 and fixes this

We recommend that you upgrade your zope package immediately.
