New git packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/git-2.17.5-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue:
  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.
  Unlike the vulnerability CVE-2020-5260 fixed in v2.17.4, the
  credentials are not for a host of the attacker's choosing; instead,
  they are for some unspecified host (based on how the configured
  credential helper handles an absent "host" parameter).
  For more information, see:
    https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2020-11008
  (* Security fix *)
