Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-10-12 07:45:51 UTC
From ${URL} :

he following issue was fixed in Git version 2.6.1:

* Some protocols (like git-remote-ext) can execute arbitrary code found in the URL. The URLs that submodules use may come from arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote repository), and can hurt those who blindly enable recursive fetch. Restrict the 
allowed protocols to well known and safe ones.

CVE request:

@maintainer(s): since the fixed package is already in the tree, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-10-17 09:07:45 UTC
AFAIK the same fixes went into =dev-vcs/git-2.3.10, =dev-vcs/git-2.4.10 and =dev-vcs/git-2.5.4

So I'd prefer to stabilize =dev-vcs/git-2.3.10 and =dev-vcs/git-2.4.10:

Arches please test and mark stable the above mentioned two versions. Target keywords are:
