Description

Updated vim packages that fix security vulnerabilities are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

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

The Debian Security Audit Project discovered an insecure temporary file usage in VIM. A local user could overwrite or create files as a different user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable utilities. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0069 to this issue.

All users of VIM are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain backported patches for these issues.
