[USN-154-1] vim vulnerability

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-154-1              July 26, 2005
vim vulnerability
http://www.guninski.com/where_do_you_want_billg_to_go_today_5.html
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected:

kvim
kvim-perl
kvim-python
kvim-tcl
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+1ubuntu2.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or
1:6.3-046+1ubuntu7.1 (for Ubuntu 5.04).  In general, a standard system
upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Georgi Guninski discovered that it was possible to construct Vim
modelines that execute arbitrary shell commands by wrapping them in
glob() or expand() function calls. If an attacker tricked an user to
open a file with a specially crafted modeline, he could exploit this
to execute arbitrary commands with the user's privileges.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog):
