Synopsis
========

A vulnerability has been found in Vim and gVim concerning how certain
modeline options are treated.

Background
==========

Vim is an efficient, highly configurable improved version of the
classic ‘vi’ text editor. gVim is the GUI version of Vim.

Affected packages
=================

——————————————————————-
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
——————————————————————-
1 app-editors/vim < 8.1.1486 >= 8.1.1486
2 app-editors/gvim < 8.1.1486 >= 8.1.1486
——————————————————————-
2 affected packages

Description
===========

It was found that the `:source!` command was not restricted by the
sandbox mode. If modeline was explicitly enabled, opening a specially
crafted text file in vim could result in arbitrary command execution.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file
using Vim or gVim, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Vim users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge –sync
# emerge –ask –oneshot –verbose « >=app-editors/vim-8.1.1486 »

All gVim users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge –sync
# emerge –ask –oneshot –verbose « >=app-editors/gvim-8.1.1486 »
