- More information:
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in git, a fast, scalable, distributed revision control system.
It was reported that the --export-marks option of git fast-import is exposed also via the in-stream command feature export-marks=..., allowing to overwrite arbitrary paths.
It was discovered that submodule names are not validated strictly enough, allowing very targeted attacks via remote code execution when performing recursive clones.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1:2.1.4-2.1+deb8u8.
We recommend that you upgrade your git packages.
