Various Plone hotfixes, 2013-06-18

Project description

Plone hotfix, 2013-06-18

This hotfix fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Plone, including arbitrary code execution and privilege escalation.

This hotfix should be applied to the following versions of Plone:

  • Plone <= 4.3.1

  • Plone <= 4.2.6

  • Any older version of Plone including 2.1, 2.5, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 4.0, and 4.1

The hotfix is officially supported by the Plone security team on the following versions of Plone in accordance with the Plone version support policy: 3.3.6, 4.1.6, 4.2.6, 4.3 and 4.3.1 . However it has also received some testing on older versions of Plone. The fixes included here will be incorporated into subsequent releases of Plone, so Plone 4.2.6, 4.3.1 and greater should not require this hotfix.
