    Vulnerability  : shell command injection

    Debian Bug     : 512330
    
    It was discovered that gitweb, the web interface for the Git version
    control system, contained several vulnerabilities:
    
    Remote attackers could use crafted requests to execute shell commands on
    the web server, using the snapshot generation and pickaxe search
    functionality (CVE-2008-5516).
    
    Local users with write access to the configuration of a Git repository
    served by gitweb could cause gitweb to execute arbitrary shell commands
    with the permission of the web server (CVE-2008-5517).
    
    For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.4.4-4+etch1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) and testing distribution (lenny),
    the remote shell command injection issuei (CVE-2008-5516) has been fixed
    in version 1.5.6-1.  The other issue will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your Git packages.
