Mandrake A new Hotfix for Zope has been released that fixes a very important security issue that affects all versions of Zope prior to and including 2.3.1b1.


                Linux-Mandrake Security Update Advisory

Package name:           Zope
Date:                   February 26th, 2001
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2001:025

Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1

Problem Description:

 A new Hotfix for Zope has been released that fixes a very important
 security issue that affects all versions of Zope prior to and including
 2.3.1b1.  Users can use through-the-web scripting capabilities on a
 Zope site to view and assign class attributes to ZClasses, possibly
 allowing them to make inappropriate changes to ZClass instances.  As
 well, perceived security problems with the ObjectManager,
 PropertyManager and PropertySheet classes have been fixed as well.  It
 is highly recommended that all Linux-Mandrake users using Zope upgrade
 to these new packages immediately.

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:
  rpm --checksig package.rpm
You can get the GPG public key of the Linux-Mandrake Security Team at
If you use MandrakeUpdate, the verification of md5 checksum and GPG
signature is performed automatically for you.
