FreeBSD: git -- Arbitrary command execution on case-insensitive filesystems (CVE-2014-9390)
|4||(AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)||December 19, 2014||December 22, 2014||December 22, 2014|
The Git Project reports: When using a case-insensitive filesystem an attacker can craft a malicious Git tree that will cause Git to overwrite its own .git/config file when cloning or checking out a repository, leading to arbitrary command execution in the client machine. If you are a hosting service whose users may fetch from your service to Windows or Mac OS X machines, you are strongly encouraged to update to protect such users who use existing versions of Git.
