USN-5376-1: Git vulnerability

12 April 2022

Git could be made to run arbitrary commands in platforms with multiple users support.



  • git - fast, scalable, distributed revision control system


俞晨东 discovered that Git incorrectly handled certain repository paths
in platforms with multiple users support. An attacker could possibly use
this issue to run arbitrary commands.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 21.10
Ubuntu 20.04
Ubuntu 18.04

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
