CVE-2011-4924 assignment notification -- Zope2, Zope3: Incomplete upstream fix for CVE-2010-1104 issue

Hello vendors,

  originally, Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier
CVE-2010-1104 to the following vulnerability:

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Zope 2.8.x before 2.8.12, 2.9.x
before 2.9.12, 2.10.x before 2.10.11, 2.11.x before 2.11.6, and 2.12.x before
2.12.3 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via
vectors related to error messages.

Later the applied upstream patch was found to be incomplete. The CVE identifier
of CVE-2011-4924 has been assigned to this incomplete fix with the issue
description as follows:

A cross site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Zope2 and Zope3
performed error messages sanitization. If a remote attacker could trick a user,
who was logged into Zope2, into visiting a specially-crafted URL, it would lead
to arbitrary web script execution in the context of user's Zope2 session. If a
remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into Zope3, into examining
error entries for particular Zope3 instance, it would lead to arbitrary web
script execution in the context of user's Zope3 session.
