MGASA-2022-0147 - Updated git packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 22 Apr 2022
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2022-0147.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 8
CVE: CVE-2022-24765

On multi-user machines, Git users might find themselves unexpectedly in a Git
worktree, e.g. when another user created a repository in /tmp, in a mounted
network drive or in a scratch space. Merely having a Git-aware prompt that
runs 'git status' (or 'git diff') and navigating to a directory which is
supposedly not a Git worktree, or opening such a directory in an editor or IDE
such as VS Code or Atom, will potentially run commands defined by that other
user (CVE-2022-24765).
