CVSS Base Vector:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'emacs-git'
Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the CESA-2020:0316 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
Git is a distributed revision control system with a decentralized
architecture. As opposed to centralized version control systems with a
client-server model, Git ensures that each working copy of a Git repository
is an exact copy with complete revision history. This not only allows the
user to work on and contribute to projects without the need to have
permission to push the changes to their official repositories, but also
makes it possible for the user to work with no network connection.
* git: arbitrary code execution via .gitmodules (CVE-2018-17456)
