Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201605-01 (Git: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Git is vulnerable to the remote execution of arbitrary code by cloning       repositories with large filenames or a large number of nested trees.
  Additionally, some protocols within Git, such as git-remote-ext, can       execute arbitrary code found within URLs. These URLs that submodules use       may come from arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote       repository), and can effect those who enable recursive fetch. Restrict       the allowed protocols to well known and safe ones.

Impact :

Remote attackers could execute arbitrary code on both client and server.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
