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

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.


Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 alias potato
- ---------------------------------

  Potato was released for alpha, arm, i386, m68k, powerpc and sparc.
  At this moment packages for m68k are not available yet. When they
  become available they will be announced on  http://security.debian.org/
