Description Pedro Sampaio 2019-12-11 00:16:06 UTC
While the only permitted drive letters for physical drives on Windows are letters of the US-English alphabet, this restriction does not apply to virtual drives assigned via subst <letter>:<path>. Git mistook such paths for relative paths, allowing writing outside of the worktree while cloning.



Comment 1 Pedro Sampaio 2019-12-11 00:16:51 UTC
Created git tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1781961]

Comment 2 Pavel Cahyna 2019-12-12 09:27:01 UTC
Does this bug apply to Fedora (or RHEL)? The commit (https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/git/git.git/commit/?id=f82a97eb9197c1e3768e72648f37ce0ca3233734) explicitly mentions mingw.

Comment 6 Riccardo Schirone 2019-12-17 18:05:51 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of git as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, 7, and 8 as this is a Windows only issue and it does not affect the Linux versions of git.
