    Package        : vim
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1248
    
    Florian Larysch and Bram Moolenaar discovered that vim, an enhanced vi
    editor, does not properly validate values for the the 'filetype',
    'syntax' and 'keymap' options, which may result in the execution of
    arbitrary code if a file with a specially crafted modeline is opened.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2:7.4.488-7+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vim packages.
