Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-26 13:34:26 EDT
A security flaw was found in the way Plone, a user friendly and powerful content management system, previously protected user's cookie data in certain situations. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, when visited by a valid Plone user could lead to Plone user's cookie to be forwarded if the victim was using certain browsers (possibility of session hijack).
