CVE-2017-17087

Status Candidate

Overview

fileio.c in Vim prior to 8.0.1263 sets the group ownership of a .swp file to the editor's primary group (which may be different from the group ownership of the original file), which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging an applicable group membership, as demonstrated by /etc/shadow owned by root:shadow mode 0640, but /etc/.shadow.swp owned by root:users mode 0640, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-1000382.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4582-1
Posted Oct 14, 2020
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 4582-1 - It was discovered that Vim incorrectly handled permissions on the .swp file. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to obtain sensitive information. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It was discovered that Vim incorrectly handled restricted mode. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass restricted mode and execute arbitrary commands. Note: This update only makes executing shell commands more difficult. Restricted mode should not be considered a complete security measure. Various other issues were also addressed.
