    git vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.10
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Git.
    
    Software Description:
    - git: fast, scalable, distributed revision control system
    
    Details:
    
    Joern Schneeweisz and Nicolas Joly discovered that Git contained various
    security flaws. An attacker could possibly use these issues to overwrite
    arbitrary paths, execute arbitrary code, and overwrite files in the .git
    directory.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.10:
      git                             1:2.20.1-2ubuntu1.19.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 19.04:
      git                             1:2.20.1-2ubuntu1.19.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      git                             1:2.17.1-1ubuntu0.5
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      git                             1:2.7.4-0ubuntu1.7
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
