New git packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to fix a security issue.

GIT (SSA:2018-283-01) Updates for Slackware

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/git-2.14.5-i586-1_slack14.2.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes a security issue:
Submodules' "URL"s come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but we
blindly gave it to "git clone" to clone submodules when "git clone
--recurse-submodules" was used to clone a project that has such a
submodule. The code has been hardened to reject such malformed URLs
(e.g. one that begins with a dash). Credit for finding and fixing this
vulnerability goes to joernchen and Jeff King, respectively.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
