Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59193
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-505-1 (vim)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-505-1 (vim)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to vim
announced via advisory USN-505-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Ulf Harnhammar discovered that vim does not properly sanitise the
helptags_one() function when running the helptags command.
By tricking a user into running a crafted help file, a remote attacker
could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
vim 1:6.4-006+2ubuntu6.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
vim 1:7.0-035+1ubuntu5.2

Ubuntu 7.04:
vim 1:7.0-164+1ubuntu7.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
