More information:

Multiple security vulnerabilities have been discovered in vim, an enhanced vi editor. Buffer overflows, out-of-bounds reads and use-after-free may lead to a denial-of-service (application crash) or other unspecified impact.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version 2:8.1.0875-5+deb10u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your vim packages.
