Does this mean CVE-2010-1104 applies to Zope3 too, or the fix for this
CVE created CVE-2011-4924?
The former. The CVE-2010-1104 issue was applicable to Zope3 too (just wasn't
described in the description). The reason probably being the CVE-2010-1104
to had been reported against Zope2 version only (according to particular
Zope2 patch for CVE-2010-1104 was incomplete (still allowing XSS). Not sure,
if there was some Zope3 patch for CVE-2010-1104 applied.
Jan-Wijbrand Kolman could you clarify and help us to understand original
CVE-2010-1104 situation in Zope3?
Thank you && Regards, Jan.
