CVE-2008-2712

Status Candidate

Overview

Vim 7.1.314, 6.4, and other versions allows user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via Vim scripts that do not properly sanitize inputs before invoking the execute or system functions, as demonstrated using (1) filetype.vim, (3) xpm.vim, (4) gzip_vim, and (5) netrw. NOTE: the originally reported version was 7.1.314, but the researcher actually found this set of issues in 7.1.298. NOTE: the zipplugin issue (originally vector 2 in this identifier) has been subsumed by CVE-2008-3075.

VMware Security Advisory 2009-0004
Posted Apr 1, 2009
Authored by VMware | Site vmware.com

VMware Security Advisory - ESX patches for OpenSSL, vim and bind resolve several security issues. OpenSSL 0.9.7a-33.24 and earlier does not properly check the return value from the EVP_VerifyFinal function, which could allow a remote attacker to bypass validation of the certificate chain via a malformed SSL/TLS signature for DSA and ECDSA keys. A flaw was discovered in the way Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) checked the return value of the OpenSSL DSA_do_verify function. On systems using DNSSEC, a malicious zone could present a malformed DSA certificate and bypass proper certificate validation, allowing spoofing attacks. Various vulnerabilities were discovered in vim such as format string issues and input validation problems.
