Subject[ANNOUNCE] Git v2.24.1 and others
Date
Today, the Git project is releasing the following Git versions:

v2.24.1, v2.23.1, v2.22.2, v2.21.1, v2.20.2, v2.19.3, v2.18.2,
v2.17.3, v2.16.6, v2.15.4, and v2.14.6

These releases fix various security flaws, which allowed an attacker
to overwrite arbitrary paths, remotely execute code, and/or overwrite
files in the .git/ directory etc. See the release notes attached for
the list for their descriptions and CVE identifiers.

Users of the affected maintenance tracks are urged to upgrade.

These flaws were discovered and reported by Joern Schneeweisz of
GitLab and by Microsoft Security Response Center (and in particular
Nicolas Joly), and were fixed by Johannes Schindelin, Jeff King,
Garima Singh and Jonathan Nieder on the git-security mailing list.
The release engineering and coordination was led by Johannes
Schindelin.

The tarballs are found at:

https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/

The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.24.1'
and other tags:

Git v2.14.6 Release Notes
=========================

This release addresses the security issues CVE-2019-1348,
CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352,
CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387.

Fixes since v2.14.5
-------------------

* CVE-2019-1348:
The --export-marks option of git fast-import is exposed also via
the in-stream command feature export-marks=... and it allows
overwriting arbitrary paths.

* CVE-2019-1349:
When submodules are cloned recursively, under certain circumstances
Git could be fooled into using the same Git directory twice. We now
require the directory to be empty.

* CVE-2019-1350:
Incorrect quoting of command-line arguments allowed remote code
execution during a recursive clone in conjunction with SSH URLs.

* CVE-2019-1351:
While the only permitted drive letters for physical drives on
Windows are letters of the US-English alphabet, this restriction
does not apply to virtual drives assigned via subst <letter>:
<path>. Git mistook such paths for relative paths, allowing writing
outside of the worktree while cloning.

* CVE-2019-1352:
Git was unaware of NTFS Alternate Data Streams, allowing files
inside the .git/ directory to be overwritten during a clone.

* CVE-2019-1353:
When running Git in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (also known as
"WSL") while accessing a working directory on a regular Windows
drive, none of the NTFS protections were active.

* CVE-2019-1354:
Filenames on Linux/Unix can contain backslashes. On Windows,
backslashes are directory separators. Git did not use to refuse to
write out tracked files with such filenames.

* CVE-2019-1387:
Recursive clones are currently affected by a vulnerability that is
caused by too-lax validation of submodule names, allowing very
targeted attacks via remote code execution in recursive clones.

Credit for finding these vulnerabilities goes to Microsoft Security
Response Center, in particular to Nicolas Joly. The `fast-import`
fixes were provided by Jeff King, the other fixes by Johannes
Schindelin with help from Garima Singh.


Git v2.15.4 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6 to address
the security issues CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350,
CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and
CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes for that version for details.

In conjunction with a vulnerability that was fixed in v2.20.2,
`.gitmodules` is no longer allowed to contain entries of the form
`submodule.<name>.update=!command`.


Git v2.16.6 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6 and in
v2.15.4 addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349,
CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353,
CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes for those
versions for details.


Git v2.17.3 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6 and in
v2.15.4 addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348, CVE-2019-1349,
CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352, CVE-2019-1353,
CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes for those
versions for details.

In addition, `git fsck` was taught to identify `.gitmodules` entries
of the form `submodule.<name>.update=!command`, which have been
disallowed in v2.15.4.


Git v2.18.2 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6, v2.15.4
and in v2.17.3, addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348,
CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352,
CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes
for those versions for details.


Git v2.19.3 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6, v2.15.4
and in v2.17.3, addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348,
CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352,
CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes
for those versions for details.


Git v2.20.2 Release Notes
=========================

This release merges up the fixes that appear in v2.14.6, v2.15.4
and in v2.17.3, addressing the security issues CVE-2019-1348,
CVE-2019-1349, CVE-2019-1350, CVE-2019-1351, CVE-2019-1352,
CVE-2019-1353, CVE-2019-1354, and CVE-2019-1387; see the release notes
for those versions for details.

The change to disallow `submodule.<name>.update=!command` entries in
`.gitmodules` which was introduced v2.15.4 (and for which v2.17.3
added explicit fsck checks) fixes the vulnerability in v2.20.x where a
recursive clone followed by a submodule update could execute code
contained within the repository without the user explicitly having
asked for that (CVE-2019-19604).

Credit for finding this vulnerability goes to Joern Schneeweisz,
credit for the fixes goes to Jonathan Nieder.
