[slackware-security]  vim (SSA:2022-269-02)

New vim packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/vim-9.0.0594-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  Fixed stack-based buffer overflow.
  Thanks to marav for the heads-up.
  In addition, Mig21 pointed out an issue where the defaults.vim file might
  need to be edited for some purposes as its contents will override the
  settings in the system-wide vimrc. Usually this file is replaced whenever
  vim is upgraded, which in those situations would be inconvenient for the
  admin. So, I've added support for a file named defaults.vim.custom which
  (if it exists) will be used instead of the defaults.vim file shipped in
  the packages and will persist through upgrades.
  For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2022-3296
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/vim-gvim-9.0.0594-i586-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
