The CVEs were not identified during the release cycles in which those
fixes were released.  Plone's hotfix includes monkey-patches for them to
permit fixing older Zope versions.

That bug was still in "Private Security" state:  I have updated it to
"Public Security", so you whould be able to view it:

I don't believe that this can be a bug in Zope itself:  adding
'__roles__' to a module-scope function is pointless unless the module
itself is importable by untrusted (TTW) code.  The
'AccessControl.SecurityInfo' module should *certainly* not be exposed to
untrusted code.   If some other out-of-Zope-core module which is supposed
to be importable by TTW code imports that function at module scope, then
fix *that* module instead.

That "fix" is also disputed:  hiding the "default" view from the '@@'
name does not actually improve security at all.  There is a Launchpad bug
where it is being debated (#1079225), but that bug is still in "Private
Security" mode.  The correct fix is to change the code of the
multi-adapter to barf if published via a URL.
