Debian-specific: no

On versions of Zope prior to 2.2.1 it was possible for a user with the
ability to edit DTML to gain unauthorized access to extra roles during a
request. A fix was previously announced in the Debian zope package
2.1.6-5.1, but that package did not fully address the issue and has been
superseded by this announcement. More information is available at 
http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope/Hotfix_2000-08-17/security_alert

Debian 2.1 (slink) did not include zope, and is not vulnerable. Debian
