Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : vim
Version     : 6.3.054
Release     : 0.fc3.1
Summary     : The VIM editor.
Description :
VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is an updated and improved version of the
vi editor.  Vi was the first real screen-based editor for UNIX, and is
still very popular.  VIM improves on vi by adding new features:
multiple windows, multi-level undo, block highlighting and more.

Update Information:

Ciaran McCreesh discovered a modeline vulnerability in VIM. It is possible
that a malicious user could create a file containing a specially crafted
modeline which could cause arbitrary command execution when viewed by a
victim. Please note that this issue only affects users who have modelines
and filetype plugins enabled, which is not the default. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2004-1138
to this issue.

Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña discovered insecure usage of temporary files
in two scripts shipped with vim. It is possible that a malicious user could
guess the names of the temporary files and start a symlink attack.
