FreeBSD : Git -- Execute arbitrary code (7f645ee5-7681-11e5-8519-005056ac623e)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86450


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Git release notes :

Some protocols (like git-remote-ext) can execute arbitrary code found in the URL. The URLs that submodules use may come from arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote repository), and can hurt those who blindly enable recursive fetch. Restrict the allowed protocols to well known and safe ones.


Update the affected packages.
