A vulnerability was found in the Mercurial version control system
which could lead to remote arbitrary code execution.

CVE-2017-17458

A specially malformed Mercurial repository could cause Git
subrepositories to run arbitrary code in the form of a
.git/hooks/post-update script checked into the parent repository.
Typical use of Mercurial prevents construction of such repositories,
but they can be created programmatically.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
2.2.2-4+deb7u6.

We recommend that you upgrade your mercurial packages.
