package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Git is a distributed revision control system
with a decentralized architecture. As opposed to centralized version control
systems with a client-server model, Git ensures that each working copy of a Git
repository is an exact copy with complete revision history. This not only allows
the user to work on and contribute to projects without the need to have
permission to push the changes to their official repositories, but also makes it
possible for the user to work with no network connection. Security Fix(es): * It
was found that the script shipped with git failed to correctly
handle branch names containing special characters. A specially crafted git
repository could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands if a user working
with the repository configured their shell to include repository information in
the prompt. (CVE-2014-9938) * A flaw was found in the way git-shell handled
command-line options for the restricted set of git-shell commands. A remote,
authenticated attacker could use this flaw to bypass git-shell restrictions, to
view and manipulate files, by abusing the instance of the less command launched
using crafted command-line options. (CVE-2017-8386) Additional Changes: For
detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.

Affected Software/OS:
git on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7)
