My opinion on this is a little different. It's quite easy for anyone to make mischief on any Zope server that lets people make even minor changes to the site, such as giving feedback, posting a discussion item, etc.

On the weekend I had the idea that it's even easier. See how to do that on an zope server.

All you have to do is include a Zope-Version cookie in the request and your changes will place a lock on any objects that the request touches. Zope doesn't even check the validity of the Zope-Version cookie. Anyone who is not a ZODB expert would have a hard time bringing the site back to sanity.

This was my fear, and it's pretty shocking.

Maybe Oliver should do just such a thing on both and, or maybe to prove a point and then this issue will get the attention is deserves ;-)

Yeah, and I'm sure I'd get personal attention too, in a way I'd prefer not to get ;).
