3. Problem description:

VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is a version of the vi editor.   

A bug was found in the way VIM processes modelines. If a user with
modelines enabled opens a text file with a carefully crafted modeline,
arbitrary commands may be executed as the user running VIM. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2005-2368
to this issue.
 
Users of VIM are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata 
relevant to your system have been applied. 
 
This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network, 
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command: 
 
up2date 
 
This will start an interactive process that will result in the 
appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

164279 - CAN-2005-2368 vim modeline arbitrary command execution
