Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Git v2.12.3 and others
Date: Wed, 10 May 2017 09:06:50 +0900	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Maintenance releases Git v2.4.12, v2.5.6, v2.6.7, v2.7.5, v2.8.5,
v2.9.4, v2.10.3, v2.11.2, and v2.12.3 have been tagged and are now
available at the usual places.

These are primarily to fix a recently disclosed problem with "git
shell", which may allow a user who comes over SSH to run an
interactive pager by causing it to spawn "git upload-pack --help"
(CVE-2017-8386).  Some (like v2.12.3) have other fixes that have
been accumulating included as well.

"git-shell" is a restricted login shell that can be used on a server
to prevent SSH clients from running any programs except those needed
for git fetches and pushes. If you are not running a server, or if
your server has not been explicitly configured to use git-shell as a
login shell, you are not affected.  Also note that sites running "git
shell" behind gitolite are NOT vulnerable.

The tarballs are found at:
