Subject: CVE id request: git

"* Various commands could overflow its internal buffer on a 
platform with small PATH_MAX value in a repository that has contents with
long pathnames."

An attacker can exploit this causing a stack-based buffer 
overflow if a victim user executes the git-diff or git-grep 
commands in a crafted repository.


Can someone assign a CVE id to this one?
