Vim Flaw in Quoting Vim Script Lets Remote Users Cause Arbitrary Commands to Be Executed in Certain Cases
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.
