 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                       MDVSA-2009:047-1
 http://www.mandriva.com/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : vim
 Date    : February 24, 2009
 Affected: 2008.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Python has a variable called sys.path that contains all paths where
 Python loads modules by using import scripting procedure. A wrong
 handling of that variable enables local attackers to execute arbitrary
 code via Python scripting in the current Vim working directory
 (CVE-2009-0316).
 
 This update provides fix for that vulnerability.

 Update:

 This update also provides updated packages for Mandriva Linux 2008.0.
