Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in vim, a highly configurable text editor.
Vim sets the group ownership of a .swp file to the editor’s primary group (which may be different from the group ownership of the original file), which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging an applicable group membership.
Vim did not restrict the
:source!command when executed in a sandbox.
For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 7.3.547-7+deb7u5.
We recommend that you upgrade your vim packages.
