Description

An update for mercurial is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Mercurial is a fast, lightweight source control management system designed for efficient handling of very large distributed projects.

Security Fix(es) :

  • A flaw was found in the way 'hg serve --stdio' command in Mercurial handled command-line options. A remote, authenticated attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the Mercurial server by using specially crafted command-line options. (CVE-2017-9462)

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
