FEDORA-2017-b1b3ae6666

security update in Fedora 26 for git

Status: stable 2 years ago

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.
