Description

Updated vim packages fixing a security problem are available.

Users could embed malicious VIM control codes into a file - as soon as any user opened that file in vim-enhanced or vim-X11 with the status line option enabled in .vimrc, the commands would be executed as that user.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-vim-common
  • redhat-upgrade-vim-enhanced
  • redhat-upgrade-vim-minimal
  • redhat-upgrade-vim-x11

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
