CVE-2008-4677 (retired)

autoload/netrw.vim (aka the Netrw Plugin) 109, 131, and other versions
before 133k for Vim 7.1.266, other 7.1 versions, and 7.2 stores credentials
for an FTP session, and sends those credentials when attempting to
establish subsequent FTP sessions to servers on different hosts, which
allows remote FTP servers to obtain sensitive information in opportunistic
circumstances by logging usernames and passwords. NOTE: the upstream
vendor disputes a vector involving different ports on the same host,
stating "I'm assuming that they're using the same id and password on that
unchanged hostname, deliberately."
 mdeslaur> upstream author disputes this, let's ignore
