Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201708-6
Date : 2017-08-12
CVE-ID : CVE-2017-1000117
Package : git
Type : arbitrary command execution
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-377
The package git before version 2.14.1-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary
Upgrade to 2.14.1-1.
# pacman -Syu "git>=2.14.1-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 2.14.1.
A security issue has been found in git < 2.14.1. A malicious third-
party can give a crafted "ssh://..." URL to an unsuspecting victim, and
an attempt to visit the URL can result in
any program that exists on the victim's machine being executed. Such a
URL could be placed in the .gitmodules file of a malicious project, and
an unsuspecting victim could be tricked into running "git clone
--recurse-submodules" to trigger the vulnerability.
A remote attacker can execute arbitrary command on the affected host by
tricking a user into executing a git command.
