src/configure.in in Vim 5.0 through 7.1, when used for a build with Python support, does not ensure that the Makefile-conf temporary file has the intended ownership and permissions, which allows local users to execute arbitrary code by modifying this file during a time window, or by creating it ahead of time with permissions that prevent its modification by configure.

Id Description
47079 Vim src/configure.in Temporary File Symlink Arbitrary File Overwrite

VIM, when built with Python support, contains a flaw that may allow a malicious local user to create arbitrary files on the system. The issue is due to the 'configure.in' script creating temporary files insecurely. It is possible for a user to use a symlink style attack to manipulate arbitrary files, resulting in a loss of integrity.
