Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201906-9 ========================================= Severity: High Date : 2019-06-11 CVE-ID : CVE-2019-12735 Package : gvim Type : arbitrary code execution Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-976 Summary ======= The package <a href="/package/gvim">gvim</a> before version 8.1.1467-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 8.1.1467-1. # pacman -Syu "gvim>=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.
