USN-61-1: vim vulnerabilities
Posted on: 01/19/2005 02:02 AM

A vim security update has been released for Ubuntu Linux 4.10

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-61-1 January 18, 2005
vim vulnerabilities
CAN-2005-0069
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

kvim
vim
vim-gnome
vim-gtk
vim-lesstif
vim-perl
vim-python
vim-tcl

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 1:6.3-025+1ubuntu2.2. In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Javier Fernendez-Sanguino Pea noticed that the auxillary scripts "tcltags" and "vimspell.sh" created temporary files in an insecure manner. This could allow a symbolic link attack to create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user invoking the script (either by calling it directly or by execution through vim).
