Ubuntu Security Notice 5613-1 - 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. 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.

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)

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)
