Fedora Update Notification
2018-10-19 15:48:55.358498

Name : git
Product : Fedora 27
Version : 2.14.5
Release : 1.fc27
Summary : Fast Version Control System
Description :
Git is a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system with an
unusually rich command set that provides both high-level operations
and full access to internals.

The git rpm installs common set of tools which are usually using with
small amount of dependencies. To install all git packages, including
tools for integrating with other SCMs, install the git-all meta-package.

Update Information:

Upstream security update resolving an issue with `git clone –recurse-
submodules`. From the [upstream release announcement](https://public- > These releases
fix a security flaw (CVE-2018-17456), which allowed an > attacker to execute
arbitrary code by crafting a malicious .gitmodules > file in a project cloned
with –recurse-submodules. > > When running “git clone –recurse-submodules”,
Git parses the supplied > .gitmodules file for a URL field and blindly passes it
as an argument > to a “git clone” subprocess. If the URL field is set to a
string that > begins with a dash, this “git clone” subprocess interprets the URL
as > an option. This can lead to executing an arbitrary script shipped in > the
superproject as the user who ran “git clone”. > > In addition to fixing the
security issue for the user running “clone”, > the 2.17.2, 2.18.1 and 2.19.1
releases have an “fsck” check which can > be used to detect such malicious
repository content when fetching or > accepting a push. See
“transfer.fsckObjects” in git-config(1). > > Credit for finding and fixing this
vulnerability goes to joernchen > and Jeff King, respectively.
