A second floor shower stall is leaking into an adjacent walk in closet. First reaction was to recaulk, then to replace the gasket in the drain (little known fact- recommended replacement is 7-10 years). Finally looked at single lever faucet. Took off the faceplate and now can see leak coming from the line that goes up to the shower head, which is vinyl attached to the copper faucet connection.

How is this repaired? Is a DIY possible?

Yes, I don't even see a fitting. It almost looks as if the vinyl was just stuck onto the metal pipe. I see nothing screwed down over it, which wouldn't be surprising.
