NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream git package. See Remediation section below for Debian:8 relevant versions.

revision.c in git before 2.7.4 uses an incorrect integer data type, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a (1) long filename or (2) many nested trees, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.

Remediation

Upgrade Debian:8 git to version 1:2.1.4-2.1+deb8u2 or higher.
