Package        : zope
Problem type   : insufficient protection
Debian-specific: no

A busy week for the Zope team: on Monday another security alert was
released revealing a potential problem found by Peter Kelly. This
problem involved incorrect protection of data updating for Image and
File objects: any user with DTML editing privileges could update the
File or Image object data directly.

This has been fixed in version 2.1.6-5.4 by including the 2000-12-19
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.
