==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Vim.

Software Description:
- vim: Vi IMproved - enhanced vi editor

Details:

It was discovered that Vim was not properly performing bounds checks
when executing spell suggestion commands. An attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-0943)

It was discovered that Vim was using freed memory when dealing with
regular expressions through its old regular expression engine. If a user
were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could
crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly achieve
code execution. (CVE-2022-1154)

It was discovered that Vim was not properly performing checks on name of
lambda functions. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a
denial of service. This issue affected only Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
(CVE-2022-1420)

It was discovered that Vim was incorrectly performing bounds checks
when processing invalid commands with composing characters in Ex
mode. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of
service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1616)

It was discovered that Vim was not properly processing latin1 data
when issuing Ex commands. An attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1619)

It was discovered that Vim was not properly performing memory
management when dealing with invalid regular expression patterns in
buffers. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2022-1620)

It was discovered that Vim was not properly processing invalid bytes
when performing spell check operations. An attacker could possibly use
this issue to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-1621)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
  vim                             2:8.2.3995-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  vim                             2:8.1.2269-1ubuntu5.8

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  vim                             2:8.0.1453-1ubuntu1.9

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
  vim                             2:7.4.052-1ubuntu3.1+esm5

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
