Title: Git: Security bypass (GLSA 201706-04)
A vulnerability in Git might allow remote attackers to bypass
Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency.
Vulnerable: < 2.13.0
Unaffected: >= 2.13.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
Timo Schmid discovered that the Git restricted shell incorrectly
filtered allowed commands.
A remote attacker could possibly bypass security restrictions and access
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Git users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-vcs/git-2.13.0"
