Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-11-11 16:37:19 UTC
Zope wrote:
 PythonScripts in Zope 2 can be misused for shutting down a complete Zope 2 instance or misused for a local denial-of-service attack. This issue affects only those Zope 2 instances where users have unrestricted access to the ZMI and the ability to edit PythonScripts. This should usually not be the case for instances where the Manager access is granted only to trusted persons.
