CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT

PACKAGE   : vim
SUMMARY   : Arbitrary commands execution through modelines

ID        : CLA-2004:812

DESCRIPTION
 Vim is a highly configurable text editor. It is an improved version
 of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.
 
 Georgi Guninski found[1] a vulnerability[2] in vim that can be
 exploited to execute arbitrary commands when the user opens a text
 file specially crafted by an attacker. The vulnerability resides in
 the "modelines" feature, which allows one to place some VIM commands
 inside of a text file.
 
 This update includes a new version of vim (6.1+patches) which,
 besides the fix for the aforementioned vulnerability, contains
 several other bug fixes. The vim package distributed with Conectiva
 Linux 9 (vim-*-6.1-27650cl) is already patched and therefore not
 vulnerable to this issue.


SOLUTION
 All users should upgrade.
