    Package        : vim
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-12735
    
    User "Arminius" discovered a vulnerability in Vim, an enhanced version of the
    standard UNIX editor Vi (Vi IMproved). The "Common vulnerabilities and
    exposures project" identifies the following problem:
      
    Editors typically provide a way to embed editor configuration commands (aka
    modelines) which are executed once a file is opened, while harmful commands
    are filtered by a sandbox mechanism. It was discovered that the "source"
    command (used to include and execute another file) was not filtered, allowing
    shell command execution with a carefully crafted file opened in Vim.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 8.0.0197-4+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your vim packages.
