Amazon Linux AMI : git (ALAS-2018-948)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106693
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMishandling layers of tree objects
Git through 2.14.2 mishandles layers of tree objects, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted repository, aka a Git bomb. This can also have an impact of disk consumption; however, an affected process typically would not survive its attempt to build the data structure in memory before writing to disk. (CVE-2017-15298)
SolutionRun 'yum update git' to update your system.
