<p>Git is a free and open source distributed version control system
designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with
speed and efficiency.
<p>Git contains a stack-based buffer overflow in the is_git_directory
function in setup.c.
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker could gain escalated privileges via a specially crafted
git repository.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All Git users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=dev-vcs/git-"
<p>NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since September 11, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
