The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Security Fix(es) :
- It was found that the git-prompt.sh script shipped with
git failed to correctly handle branch names containing
special characters. A specially crafted git repository
could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands if a
user working with the repository configured their shell
to include repository information in the prompt.
- A flaw was found in the way git-shell handled
command-line options for the restricted set of git-shell
commands. A remote, authenticated attacker could use
this flaw to bypass git-shell restrictions, to view and
manipulate files, by abusing the instance of the less
command launched using crafted command-line options.
