Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201906-9
Date : 2019-06-11
CVE-ID : CVE-2019-12735
Package : gvim
Type : arbitrary code execution
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-976
The package gvim before version 8.1.1467-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary
Upgrade to 8.1.1467-1.
# pacman -Syu "gvim>=8.1.1467-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 8.1.1467.
Disable modeline support in the vimrc file by setting:
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.
A remote attacker could execute code with a maliciously written file.
