[slackware-security] git (SSA:2017-223-01)

 

New git packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,

14.2, and -current to fix security issues.

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/git-2.14.1-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.

Fixes security issues:

A "ssh://..." URL can result in a "ssh" command line with a hostname that

begins with a dash "-", which would cause the "ssh" command to instead

(mis)treat it as an option. This is now prevented by forbidding such a

hostname (which should not impact any real-world usage).

Similarly, when GIT_PROXY_COMMAND is configured, the command is run with

host and port that are parsed out from "ssh://..." URL; a poorly written

GIT_PROXY_COMMAND could be tricked into treating a string that begins with a

dash "-" as an option. This is now prevented by forbidding such a hostname

and port number (again, which should not impact any real-world usage).

For more information, see:
