Resolve an arbitrary code execution vulnerability via crafted "ssh://" URL (CVE-2017-1000117).
From the release announcement:
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. Credits to find and fix the issue go to Brian Neel at GitLab, Joern Schneeweisz of Recurity Labs and Jeff King at GitHub.
