Did you report this vulnerability to Odoo SA?

Hi all,

today I got aware that Odoo by default (and by design) assigns the mail 
template editor group to all backend users. Sounds harmless, but being a 
member of this group allows you to run code, and when you can run code you can 
do all kinds of nefarious things in the database.

Given I'm busy with Odoo for a very long time, I'm a little ashamed that this 
is news for me, but as a few colleagues I asked were also not aware of this, 
it seems a good idea to me to spread awareness.

On you find a module that helps you 
removing this potentially dangerous group from your users.

A very similar issue is mass_mailing with the mass mailing user group, the 
above PR also contains a module to address that.

My (and my customers') expectation is: Nobody can run code unless being added 
to some high privilege group like mass mailing user explicitly, and those 
modules help implementing this.

Best regards,

Your partner for the hard Odoo problems
