CVE-2018-7187

Published: 16 February 2018

The "go get" implementation in Go 1.9.4, when the -insecure command-line option is used, does not validate the import path (get/vcs.go only checks for "://" anywhere in the string), which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via a crafted web site.

Notes

AuthorNote
seth-arnold
This fault is unlikely to need any further package rebuilds because
'go get' is presumably non-functional inside the Launchpad build service.
