    Dylan Simon discovered that gitolite, a SSH-based gatekeeper for git repositories, is prone to directory traversal attacks when restricting admin defined commands (ADC). This allows an attacker to execute arbitrary commands with privileges of the gitolite server via crafted command names.

    Package        : gitolite
    Vulnerability  : directory traversal
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : none yet
    
    Dylan Simon discovered that gitolite, a SSH-based gatekeeper for git
    repositories, is prone to directory traversal attacks when restricting
    admin defined commands (ADC).  This allows an attacker to execute arbitrary
    commands with privileges of the gitolite server via crafted command names.
    
    Please note that this only affects installations that have ADC enabled
    (not the Debian default).
    
    
    The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem,
    it does not include gitolite.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.4-2+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.7-2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.7-2.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gitolite packages.
