    1. Summary:
    
    Updated vim packages that fix security vulnerabilities are now available
    for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
    
    This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
    Security Response Team.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    VIM (Vi IMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi screen-based
    editor.
    
    Ciaran McCreesh discovered a modeline vulnerability in VIM.  An attacker
    could create a text file containing a specially crafted modeline which
    could cause arbitrary command execution when viewed by a victim using VIM. 
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name
    CAN-2004-1138 to this issue.  Please note that this issue only affects
    users who have modelines and filetype plugins enabled, which is not the
    default.  
    
    The Debian Security Audit Project discovered an insecure temporary file
    usage in VIM.  A local user could overwrite or create files as a different
    user who happens to run one of the the vulnerable utilities.  The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
    CAN-2005-0069 to this issue. 
    
    All users of VIM are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
    which contain backported patches for these issues.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
