    Package        : zope
    Problem type   : privilege escalation
    Debian-specific: no
    Last week a Zope (security advisory was released which indicated
    Erik Enge found a problem in the way Zope calculates roles. In some
    situations Zope checked the wrong folder hierarchy which could
    cause it to grant local roles when it should not. In other words:
    users with privileges in one folder could gain privileges in
    another folder.
    This has been fixed in version 2.1.6-5.3 by including the
    2000-12-15 hotfix, and we recommend that you upgrade your zope
    package immediately.
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
