    Package        : vim-syntastic
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-11319
    
    Enrico Zini discovered a vulnerability in Syntastic, an addon
    module for the Vim editor that runs a file through external checkers
    and displays any resulting errors. Config files were looked up in the
    current working directory which could result in arbitrary
    shell code execution if a malformed source code file is opened.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.7.0-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vim-syntastic packages.
