Beware Linux users! Vulnerability in Vim or Neovim Editor could compromise your Linux

Beware Linux Users CVE 2019 12735 Vulnerability In Vim Or Neowim Editor Could Compromise Your Linux 696x392

Security expert Armin Razmjou recently detected a high-risk arbitrary OS command execution vulnerability (CVE-2019-12735) in Vim and Neovim.

For those unaware, Vim and Neovim are two most popular and powerful command-line text editing applications that come pre-installed in most of the Linux distros. Vim is a text editor that allows users to create, view or edit any file, including text, documents, and programming scripts. On the other hand, Neovim is a fork of Vim that aims to improve user experience, plugins, and GUIs (graphical user interfaces). As a result, the code execution vulnerability is also present in Neovim.
