USN-2938-1: Git vulnerabilities
21 March 2016
Git could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it received changes from a specially crafted remote repository.
- git - fast, scalable, distributed revision control system
Laël Cellier discovered that Git incorrectly handled path strings in
crafted Git repositories. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user invoking Git. (CVE-2016-2315, CVE-2016-2324)
