[ASA-201906-8] vim: arbitrary code execution
Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201906-8 ========================================= Severity: High Date : 2019-06-11 CVE-ID : CVE-2019-12735 Package : vim Type : arbitrary code execution Remote : Yes Link : Summary ======= The package vim before version 8.1.1467-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 8.1.1467-1. # pacman -Syu "vim>=8.1.1467-1" The problem has been fixed upstream in version 8.1.1467. Workaround ========== Disable modeline support in the vimrc file by setting: set nomodeline Description =========== getchar.c in Vim before 8.1.1365 and Neovim before 0.3.6 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via the :source! command in a modeline, as demonstrated by execute in Vim, and assert_fails or nvim_input in Neovim. Impact ====== A remote attacker could execute code with a maliciously written file. References ==========
