DSA-1777 git-core -- file permission error

ID: oval:org.mitre.oval:def:8099Date: (C)2009-12-15   (M)2015-06-19
Class: PATCHFamily: unix




Peter Palfrader discovered that in the Git revision control system, on some architectures files under /usr/share/git-core/templates/ were owned by a non-root user. This allows a user with that uid on the local system to write to these files and possibly escalate their privileges. This issue only affects the DEC Alpha and MIPS (big and little endian) architectures.

Platform:
Debian 4.0
