    Package        : git
    CVE ID         : CVE-2019-1348 CVE-2019-1349 CVE-2019-1352 CVE-2019-1353

    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in git, a fast, scalable,
    distributed revision control system.
    
    CVE-2019-1348
    
        It was reported that the --export-marks option of git fast-import is
        exposed also via the in-stream command feature export-marks=...,
        allowing to overwrite arbitrary paths.
    
    CVE-2019-1387
    
        It was discovered that submodule names are not validated strictly
        enough, allowing very targeted attacks via remote code execution
        when performing recursive clones.
    
    CVE-2019-19604
    
        Joern Schneeweisz reported a vulnerability, where a recursive clone
        followed by a submodule update could execute code contained within
        the repository without the user explicitly having asked for that. It
        is now disallowed for `.gitmodules` to have entries that set
        `submodule..update=!command`.
    
    In addition this update addresses a number of security issues which are
    only an issue if git is operating on an NTFS filesystem (CVE-2019-1349,
    CVE-2019-1352 and CVE-2019-1353).
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed
    in version 1:2.11.0-3+deb9u5.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1:2.20.1-2+deb10u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your git packages.
