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

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-5613-1 caused a regression in Vim.

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

Details:

USN-5613-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Vim. Unfortunately that update failed
to include binary packages for some architectures. This update fixes that
regression.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory 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 20.04 LTS:
  vim                             2:8.1.2269-1ubuntu5.9

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