    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-9706 CVE-2015-0838
    Debian Bug     : 780958 780989
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Dulwich, a Python
    implementation of the file formats and protocols used by the Git version
    control system. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2014-9706
    
        It was discovered that Dulwich allows writing to files under .git/
        when checking out working trees. This could lead to the execution of
        arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running an
        application based on Dulwich.
    
    CVE-2015-0838
    
        Ivan Fratric of the Google Security Team has found a buffer
        overflow in the C implementation of the apply_delta() function,
        used when accessing Git objects in pack files. An attacker could
        take advantage of this flaw to cause the execution of arbitrary
        code with the privileges of the user running a Git server or client
        based on Dulwich.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.8.5-2+deb7u2.
    
    For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been
    fixed in version 0.9.7-3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 0.10.1-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your dulwich packages.
