    It was discovered that Plone, a web content management system, allows
    remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via specially crafted web
    browser cookies.
    
    The oldstable distribution (sarge) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.5.1-4etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your zope-cmfplone package.
