Subject: CVE-2018-17456 Git RCE via .gitmodules


just a short heads up to oss-sec:

Git has just [0] released Versions 2.14.5, 2.15.3, 2.16.5, 2.17.2,
2.18.1, and 2.19.1 which mitigate CVE-2018-17456, an RCE issue I found
within the handling of Git submodules.

More specifically this issue allows execution of arbitrary commands via
a argument injection to subsequent `git clone` operations using the
`url` parameter in the `.gitmodules` file.
