    Jann Horn discovered a directory traversal vulnerability in cgit, a fast web frontend for git repositories written in C. A remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw to retrieve arbitrary files via a specially crafted request, when 'enable-http-clone=1' (default) is not turned off.

    Debian Bug     : 905382
    
    Jann Horn discovered a directory traversal vulnerability in cgit, a fast
    web frontend for git repositories written in C. A remote attacker can
    take advantage of this flaw to retrieve arbitrary files via a specially
    crafted request, when 'enable-http-clone=1' (default) is not turned off.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.1+git2.10.2-3+deb9u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your cgit packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of cgit please refer to its security
    tracker page at:
