Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:029: vim

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the vim package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:029 (vim).



Javier Fernandez-Sanguino Pena discovered two vulnerabilities in scripts
included with the vim editor. The two scripts, 'tcltags' and 'vimspell.sh'
created temporary files in an insecure manner which could permit a malicious
user to execute a symbolic link attack or to create, or overwrite, arbitrary
files with the rights of the user invoking the scripts.

The updated packages are patched to prevent this problem.
