    Updated vim and neovim package fixes security vulnerability:
    
    It was discovered that Vim before 8.1.1365 and Neovim before 0.3.6 did
    not restrict the `:source!` command when executed in a sandbox. This
    allows remote attackers to take advantage of the modeline feature to
    inject arbitrary commands when a specially crafted file is opened
    (CVE-2019-12735).
