Package        : vim-syntastic
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-11319

Enrico Zini discovered a vulnerability in Syntastic, an addon
module for the Vim editor that runs a file through external checkers
and displays any resulting errors. Config files were looked up in the
current working directory which could result in arbitrary
shell code execution if a malformed source code file is opened.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.7.0-1+deb9u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your vim-syntastic packages.

For the detailed security status of vim-syntastic please refer to
its security tracker page at:
