Project Description

Plone hotfix, 2015-12-08

This hotfix fixes an unauthorized disclosure of registered user information in Plone.

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

  • Plone 5.0 and any version prior
  • Plone 4.3.7 and any version prior
  • Any older version of Plone starting from 2.1, 2.5, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2

The hotfix is officially supported by the Plone security team on the following versions of Plone in accordance with the Plone version support policy: 4.0.10, 4.1.6, 4.2.7, 4.3.7 and 5.0. 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 4.3.8, 5.0.1 and greater should not require this hotfix.
