Package: zope
Vulnerability type: remote unprivileged access
Debian-specific: no

On versions of Zope prior to 2.2beta1 it was possible for a user with the
ability to edit DTML can gain unauthorized access to extra roles during a
request. 

Debian 2.1 (slink) did not include zope, and is not vulnerable. The widely-used
Debian 2.2 (potato) pre-release does include zope and is vulnerable to this
issue. A fixed package for Debian 2.2 (potato) is available in zope 2.1.6-5.1.

        will fetch the file for you
