will do today.
Comment 4 Radoslaw Stachowiak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-17 15:06:18 UTC
fixed in portage with two new versions 2.7.8 and 2.8.2 which contains fixes for
the vulnabirity.

2.6.x is not supported, we have no information if this can be even patched.
Comment 5 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-17 22:53:16 UTC
Thx Radoslaw. 
Arches please test and mark stable. 
Comment 6 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 06:43:13 UTC
Hmm which version? 2.7.8 or 2.8.2?
Comment 7 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 06:50:34 UTC
Latest stable was 2.7.7, so 2.7.8 should probably be the stable target.
Comment 8 Gustavo Zacarias (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 07:26:26 UTC
sparc stable.
Comment 9 Michael Hanselmann (hansmi) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 11:08:44 UTC
ppc done.
Comment 10 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-18 15:24:51 UTC
Alpha stable.
Comment 11 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 02:06:29 UTC
Not sure what this is about. Can't find anything clear in the Changelog... Maybe
that :

<<disabled ".. include" directive for all the ZReST product and the
reStructuredText package>>

Looks like a file inclusion issue... maybe local file disclosure ?

Radoslaw, any info ?
Comment 12 Radoslaw Stachowiak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 04:50:05 UTC
i think we can provide general information, about file inclusion, but give a
clear info that this allows to break security of the zope to untrusted users
through the web.
Comment 13 Radoslaw Stachowiak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 04:52:06 UTC
I also need to release 2.8.3 tonight, because there were some problems on
zope2.8.2 release (
Comment 14 Radoslaw Stachowiak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 13:45:54 UTC
release 2.8.3
i suggest that advisory mention also that for 2.8.x branch upgrade to the 2.8.3
should be done.
Comment 15 Mark Loeser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-19 22:51:52 UTC
stable on x86
Comment 16 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-20 08:28:22 UTC
Radoslaw: removing/masking the 2.8.2 version is the best way to achieve the
result from comment #14. 

Technically >=2.8.2 is fixed (security-wise) so that's probably what we'll put
in the GLSA. They will pick up 2.8.3 naturally if 2.8.2 is missing...
Comment 17 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-21 08:18:58 UTC
amd64 still missing, should mark 2.7.8 stable
Comment 18 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-23 04:48:08 UTC
amd64 stable, sorry for the delay
Comment 19 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-10-25 04:49:14 UTC
