    3. Description:
    
    Git is a distributed revision control system with a decentralized
    architecture. As opposed to centralized version control systems with a
    client-server model, Git ensures that each working copy of a Git repository
    is an exact copy with complete revision history. This not only allows the
    user to work on and contribute to projects without the need to have
    permission to push the changes to their official repositories, but also
    makes it possible for the user to work with no network connection.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * git: arbitrary code execution via .gitmodules (CVE-2018-17456)
