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): * A
shell command injection flaw related to the handling of 'ssh' URLs has been
discovered in Git. An attacker could use this flaw to execute shell commands
with the privileges of the user running the Git client, for example, when
performing a 'clone' action on a malicious repository or a legitimate repository
containing a malicious commit. (CVE-2017-1000117)

Affected Software/OS:
git on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
