ZEO patch by Jim Fulton (for both CVE-2009-0668 and CVE-2009-0669) none

Description Jan Lieskovsky 2009-07-23 15:22:34 UTC
A missing access control check was found in the way Zope Enterprise Objects (ZEO) used to manage remote connections to the Zope server. A remote attacker
could use this flaw to execute arbitrary Python code in the context of
Zope server.

Comment 5 Tomas Hoger 2009-08-06 13:32:12 UTC
conga (Remote Management System used by Red Hat Cluster Suite) uses zope, but does not ship ZEO/ZODB component and hence is not affected by this problem.

zope is currently only part of EPEL5 (2.10.7).

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2009-11-10 03:22:08 UTC
zope-2.10.9-1.el5 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 5 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
