I guess, you should run the installPatch.sh as user root, right? This is a bit unclear in the release notes with this stopping the mailbox server previously.

Just as with patch 1, perl crashes during when I launch the patch.
$ sudo ./installPatch.sh
./installPatch.sh: line 35: 2007 Segmentation fault (core dumped) perl bin/zmpatch.pl --config conf/zmpatch.xml --verbose $1

I almost missed the line



Bugs 97625, 98215, 98216, 98358: multiple persistent and non-persistent XSS vulnerabilities.



So this patch is actually a critical security release which should be applied ASAP? Any CVE numbers?

Another question: Will users have to manually clear their browser cache again? See https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=98598

I have the core dump at hand and I'd love to send it to you.

However, I have been searching and searching again on your profile page for ten straight minutes, looking for an option to PM you but I couldn't find it. And you don't appear on the possible recipients when I try to create a new PM, so I have no idea how to contact you ^^'
