Description Vincent Danen 2012-10-01 12:54:29 EDT
It was reported [1],[2] that cgit suffers from a heap-based buffer overflow flaw that could lead to a denial of service or, possibly (albeit unlikely as the second report indicates), a remote shell.

This has not yet been fixed upstream, but a patch is available [3].
