Summary

The remote host is missing an update for the 'emacs-git' package(s) announced via the CESA-2020:1511 advisory.

Insight

Insight

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. Security Fix(es): * git: Crafted URL containing new lines can cause credential leak (CVE-2020-5260) For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.
