    Fixed version  : zope 2.1.6-9
    This is an addition to DSA 043-1 which fixes several vulnerabilities
    in Zope.  Something went wrong so it has to be corrected.  The
    previous security release 2.1.6-7 has two severe problems:
     1. zope 2.1.6-7 erronously included Hotfix 2000-10-02 (a fix for a
        vulnerability, which does only affect Zope 2.2.0 and later).  The
        inclusion of this Hotfix completely broke the authentification,
        which rendered zope 2.1.6-7 practically unusable.
        The Hotfix 2000-10-02 is removed in 2.1.6-9.
     2. The Hotfix 2000-10-11 in zope 2.1.6-7 was non-functional, leaving
        the package vulnerable to the possible exploit fixed by this
        Hotfix 2000-10-11 "ObjectManager subscripting"
        The issue involves the fact that the 'subscript notation' that can
        be used to access items of ObjectManagers (Folders) did not
        correctly restrict return values to only actual sub items.  This
        made it possible to access names that should be private from DTML
        (objects with names beginning with the underscore '_' character).
        This could allow DTML authors to see private implementation data
        structures and in certain cases possibly call methods that they
        shouldn't have access to from DTML.
        Hotfix 2000-10-11 is fixed in 2.1.6-9 and fixes this
    We recommend that you upgrade your zope package immediately.
