a security issue with the Docutils package coming with Zope 2.6 or higher 
has been discovered. Sites that expose reStructuredText functionality to
untrusted users (typically portal sites allowing registered users to edit 
content) are possibly affected.

Download location and installation are available from


The hotfix is supposed to work with any Zope 2.7 and 2.8 version.
It might work for Zope 2.6 and Python 2.1 but we can not give a guarantee 
since Zope 2.6 is no longer maintained. Plone sites do not seem to be 
affected (there seems to be some additional code on top of Zope's
reST implementation avoiding the failure) however this not a guarantee.
The upcoming Zope 2.8.2 and 2.7.8 releases will also ship with the hotfix.
