Detail

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 17.10 - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Git.

Software Description: - git: fast, scalable, distributed revision control system

Details:

Etienne Stalmans discovered that git did not properly validate git submodules files. A remote attacker could possibly use this to craft a git repo that causes arbitrary code execution when "git clone --recurse-submodules" is used. (CVE-2018-11235)

It was discovered that an integer overflow existed in git's pathname sanity checking code when used on NTFS filesystems. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-11233)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
git 1:2.17.1-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 17.10:
git 1:2.14.1-1ubuntu4.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
git 1:2.7.4-0ubuntu1.4

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
git 1:1.9.1-1ubuntu0.8

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
