2005-01-12
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : vim
Version : 6.3.054
Release : 0.fc3.1
Summary : The VIM editor.
Description :
VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi editor. Vi was the first real screen-based editor for UNIX, and is still very popular. VIM improves on vi by adding new features:
multiple windows, multi-level undo, block highlighting and more.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

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 plugins enabled, which is not the default. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2004-1138 to this issue.

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure usage of temporary files in two scripts shipped with vim. It is possible that a malicious user could guess the names of the temporary files and start a symlink attack.
