The remote Debian 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the dla-2876 advisory.

  • fileio.c in Vim prior to 8.0.1263 sets the group ownership of a .swp file to the editor’s primary group (which may be different from the group ownership of the original file), which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging an applicable group membership, as demonstrated by /etc/shadow owned by root:shadow mode 0640, but /etc/.shadow.swp owned by root:users mode 0640, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-1000382. (CVE-2017-17087)

  • In Vim before 8.1.0881, users can circumvent the rvim restricted mode and execute arbitrary OS commands via scripting interfaces (e.g., Python, Ruby, or Lua). (CVE-2019-20807)

  • vim is vulnerable to Heap-based Buffer Overflow (CVE-2021-3778)

  • vim is vulnerable to Use After Free (CVE-2021-3796)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
