Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2023-04-25 22:51:17 UTC

The addressed issues are:

 * CVE-2023-25652:

   By feeding specially crafted input to `git apply --reject`, a
   path outside the working tree can be overwritten with partially
   controlled contents (corresponding to the rejected hunk(s) from
   the given patch).

 * CVE-2023-25815:

   When Git is compiled with runtime prefix support and runs without
   translated messages, it still used the gettext machinery to
   display messages, which subsequently potentially looked for
   translated messages in unexpected places. This allowed for
   malicious placement of crafted messages.

 * CVE-2023-29007:

   When renaming or deleting a section from a configuration file,
   certain malicious configuration values may be misinterpreted as
   the beginning of a new configuration section, leading to arbitrary
   configuration injection.
