A vulnerability has been discovered in the LDAPUserFolder product for Zope, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the "authenticate()" function in Products/LDAPUserFolder/LDAPUserFolder.py, which does not properly verify the password provided for the emergency user. This can be exploited to gain access to certain pages of the LDAPUserFolder product by providing an arbitrary password.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.18. Other versions may also be affected.
