Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the vim packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated vim packages that fix a modeline vulnerability are now available.

VIM (Vi IMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi screen-based
editor.

Ciaran McCreesh discovered a modeline vulnerability in VIM. It is possible
that a malicious user could create a file containing a specially crafted
modeline which could cause arbitrary command execution when viewed by a
victim. Please note that this issue only affects users who have modelines
and filetype tests enabled, which is not the default. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2004-1138
to this issue.

All users of VIM are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain a backported patch for this issue.
