EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.6.0 : git (EulerOS-SA-2021-1998)

high Nessus Plugin ID 151172

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the git packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- Git is an open-source distributed revision control system. In affected versions of Git a specially crafted repository that contains symbolic links as well as files using a clean/smudge filter such as Git LFS,may cause just-checked out script to be executed while cloning onto a case-insensitive file system such as NTFS,HFS+ or APFS (i.e. the default file systems on Windows and macOS). Note that clean/smudge filters have to be configured for that. Git for Windows configures Git LFS by default,and is therefore vulnerable. The problem has been patched in the versions published on Tuesday,March 9th,2021. As a workaound,if symbolic link support is disabled in Git (e.g. via `git config
--global core.symlinks false`),the described attack won't work. Likewise,if no clean/smudge filters such as Git LFS are configured globally (i.e. _before_ cloning),the attack is foiled. As always,it is best to avoid cloning repositories from untrusted sources.(CVE-2021-21300)

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

Solution

Update the affected git package.
