These maintenance releases are to address two security issues identified as CVE-2023-22490 and CVE-2023-23946. They both affect ranges of existing versions and users are strongly encouraged to upgrade. The tarballs are found at: https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/ The following public repositories all have a copy of the 'v2.39.2' tag, as well as the tags for older maintenance tracks listed above. url = https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git url = https://kernel.googlesource.com/pub/scm/git/git url = git://repo.or.cz/alt-git.git url = https://github.com/gitster/git The addressed issues are: * CVE-2023-22490: Using a specially-crafted repository, Git can be tricked into using its local clone optimization even when using a non-local transport. Though Git will abort local clones whose source $GIT_DIR/objects directory contains symbolic links (c.f., CVE-2022-39253), the objects directory itself may still be a symbolic link. These two may be combined to include arbitrary files based on known paths on the victim's filesystem within the malicious repository's working copy, allowing for data exfiltration in a similar manner as CVE-2022-39253. * CVE-2023-23946: By feeding a crafted input to "git apply", a path outside the working tree can be overwritten as the user who is running "git apply". Credit for finding CVE-2023-22490 goes to yvvdwf, and the fix was developed by Taylor Blau, with additional help from others on the Git security mailing list. Credit for finding CVE-2023-23946 goes to Joern Schneeweisz, and the fix was developed by Patrick Steinhardt. Johannes Schindelin helped greatly in packaging the whole thing and proofreading the result. Thanks.
