Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51333
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:812
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:812
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:812.

Vim is a highly configurable text editor. It is an improved version
of the vi editor distributed with most UNIX systems.

Georgi Guninski found[1] a vulnerability[2] in vim that can be
exploited to execute arbitrary commands when the user opens a text
file specially crafted by an attacker. The vulnerability resides in
the modelines feature, which allows one to place some VIM commands
inside of a text file.

This update includes a new version of vim (6.1+patches) which,
besides the fix for the aforementioned vulnerability, contains
several other bug fixes. The vim package distributed with Conectiva
Linux 9 (vim-*-6.1-27650cl) is already patched and therefore not
vulnerable to this issue.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
