Description

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

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.

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 a backported patche for this issue.
