Amazon Linux AMI : vim (ALAS-2016-779)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 95935
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionA vulnerability was found in vim in how certain modeline options were treated. An attacker could craft a file that, when opened in vim with modelines enabled, could execute arbitrary commands with privileges of the user running vim. (modelines are disabled by default for root, and enabled by default for other users.)
SolutionRun 'yum update vim' to update your system.
