Package        : zope
Problem type   : remote unauthorized access
Debian-specific: no

A new Zope hotfix has been released which fixes a problem in ZClasses.
The README for the 2001-05-01 hotfix describes the problem as `any user
can visit a ZClass declaration and change the ZClass permission mappings
for methods and other objects defined within the ZClass, possibly
allowing for unauthorized access within the Zope instance.'

This hotfix has been added in version 2.1.6-10, and we highly recommend
that you upgrade your zope package immediately.
