A security hole has been fixed in the package vim. Please update the packages
in your
installation as soon as possible.

1. Problem Summary

An attacker can create a text file embedded with potentially dangerous
commands. By
opening this text file in VIM, the commands are executed with the privileges
of the user
that opens the file. Hence, potential damage to a system can occur if a
user were to
open this file as root.

For this vulnerability to be exploited, the ability to modify status lines
has to be
activated. This is done by adjusting the setting of the parameter
"stl" or "statusline"
in a file called ".vimrc".

2. Solution

Update the packages from our ftp server by running the following
command:

rpm -Uvh ftp_path_to_filename

Where ftp_path_to_filename is the following:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/vim-X11-5.7-4.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/vim-common-5.7-4.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/vim-standard-5.7-4.i386.rpm

The source RPM can be downloaded here:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/vim-5.7-4.src.rpm


**Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
and install the SRPM. Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
THE SECURITY HOLE.

To rebuild the vim packages on Turbolinux Workstation 6.1,
you must have the package "ctags" installed. To rebuild the package
on Turbolinux Server versions 6.0.5 and earlier, make sure you install
XFree86-devel, gtk+-devel, python-devel, gdbm-devel, and ncurses-devel.

Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:

MD5 sum Package Name

These packages are GPG signed by Turbolinux for security. Our key
is available here:

http://www.turbolinux.com/security/tlgpgkey.asc

To verify a package, use the following command:

rpm --checksig name_of_rpm

To examine only the md5sum, use the following command:

md5sum name_of_rpm

**Note: Checking GPG keys requires RPM 3.0 or higher.
