Hotfix-20060705 README

This hotfix corrects an information disclosure vulnerability in Zope2, due to Zope2's use of the docutils module to parse and render "restructured text".

Sites which allow untrusted users to create restructured text as through-the-web content should apply this hotfix.

The hotfix may be removed after upgrading to a version of Zope2 more recent than this hotfix.

Affected Versions

  • Zope 2.7.0 - 2.7.8
  • Zope 2.8.0 - 2.8.7
  • Zope 2.9.0 - 2.9.3

Installing the Hotfix

This hotfix is installed as a standard Zope2 product. The following examples assume that your Zope instance is located at '/var/zope/instance': please adjust according to your actual instance path. Also note that hotfix products are not intended for installation into the "software home" of your Zope.

  1. Unpack the tarball / zipfile for the Hotfix into a temporary location:
              $ cd /tmp
              $ tar xzf ~/Hotfix_20060704.tar.gz
  2. Copy or move the product directory from the unpacked directory to the Products directory of your Zope instance:
              $ cp -a /tmp/Hotfix_20060704/ /var/zope/instance/Products/
  3. Restart Zope:
              $ /var/zope/instance/bin/zopectl restart

Uninstalling the Hotfix

After upgrading Zope to one of the fixed versions, you should remove this hotfix product from your Zope instance.

  1. Remove the product directory from your instance 'Products':
              $ rm -rf /var/zope/instance/Products/Hotfix_20060704/
  2. Restart Zope:
              $ /var/zope/instance/bin/zopectl restart

I have installed the Hotfix in my zope instance ( /home/mysite/Products ).

When I restart my zope instance, Zope shut down

If I delete the Hotfix folder and restart Zope, it's OK.

Thanks for your help.
