In particular, if an attacker were to create a crafted working copy where the user runs any git command, the attacker could force execution of arbitrary code. This attack should be mitigated to a denial of service if git is compiled with appropriate stack-protecting flags. This buffer overrun was introduced in , which first appeared in v1.5.6, and is fixed in v1.7.2.
