Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git v2.12.3 and others
Maintenance releases Git v2.4.12, v2.5.6, v2.6.7, v2.7.5, v2.8.5,
v2.9.4, v2.10.3, v2.11.2, and v2.12.3 have been tagged and are now
available at the usual places.

These are primarily to fix a recently disclosed problem with "git
shell", which may allow a user who comes over SSH to run an
interactive pager by causing it to spawn "git upload-pack --help"
(CVE-2017-8386). Some (like v2.12.3) have other fixes that have
been accumulating included as well.

"git-shell" is a restricted login shell that can be used on a server
to prevent SSH clients from running any programs except those needed
for git fetches and pushes. If you are not running a server, or if
your server has not been explicitly configured to use git-shell as a
login shell, you are not affected. Also note that sites running "git
shell" behind gitolite are NOT vulnerable.

The tarballs are found at:

The following public repositories all have a copy of these tags:
