Scientific Linux Security Update : git on SL7.x x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 87582
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA flaw was found in the way the git-remote-ext helper processed certain URLs. If a user had Git configured to automatically clone submodules from untrusted repositories, an attacker could inject commands into the URL of a submodule, allowing them to execute arbitrary code on the user's system.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
