Description Martin Prpič 2017-01-02 15:27:41 UTC
It was found that python-tqdm executes the 'git log -n 1 --oneline' command when imported. A crafted Git repository configured to execute a particular script on a 'git log' could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running an application that imports the tqdm module.

Martin, please file bug for EPEL7 as well. It also contains this security issue.

I don't maintain EPEL version, so not going to fix it.
