Slackware 1067 Published by

A git security update has been released for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, 15.0, and -current.



git (SSA:2023-046-02)

New git packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, 15.0,
and -current to fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/git-2.35.7-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This update fixes security issues:
Using a specially-crafted repository, Git can be tricked into using
its local clone optimization even when using a non-local transport.
Though Git will abort local clones whose source $GIT_DIR/objects
directory contains symbolic links (c.f., CVE-2022-39253), the objects
directory itself may still be a symbolic link.
These two may be combined to include arbitrary files based on known
paths on the victim's filesystem within the malicious repository's
working copy, allowing for data exfiltration in a similar manner as
CVE-2022-39253.
By feeding a crafted input to "git apply", a path outside the
working tree can be overwritten as the user who is running "git
apply".
