    Carlo Arenas discovered a flaw in git, a fast, scalable, distributed
    revision control system. With a crafted URL that contains a newline or
    empty host, or lacks a scheme, the credential helper machinery can be
    fooled into providing credential information that is not appropriate for
    the protocol in use and host being contacted.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:2.11.0-3+deb9u7.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.20.1-2+deb10u3.
