high Nessus Plugin ID 136789

Language:

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for git to 2.26.2 fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

CVE-2020-11008: Specially crafted URLs may have tricked the credentials helper to providing credential information that is not appropriate for the protocol in use and host being contacted (bsc#1169936).

Non-security issue fixed :

Fixed git-daemon not starting after conversion from sysvinit to systemd service (bsc#1169605).

Enabled access for git-daemon in firewall configuration (bsc#1170302).

Fixed problems with recent switch to protocol v2, which caused fetches transferring unreasonable amount of data (bsc#1170741).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
