[SECURITY] [DLA 718-1] vim security update

Package        : vim
Version        : 2:7.3.547-7+deb7u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-1248

Florian Larysch and Bram Moolenaar discovered that vim, an enhanced vi
editor, does not properly validate values for the the 'filetype',
'syntax' and 'keymap' options, which may result in the execution of
arbitrary code if a file with a specially crafted modeline is opened.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your vim packages.
