Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-26 12:18:05 EDT
A denial of service flaw was found in the way Plone, a user friendly and powerful content management system, performed particular resource related information retrieval in certain cases (request interaction with internal traversal machinery). A remote attacker, having administrator privilege to certain subset of Plone action screens / functionality, could use this flaw to cause uncontrolled resource consumption (infinite loop) by issuing a specially-crafted request.
