Git just announced a new release (ver 2.2.1) of the git client that fixes a vulnerability affecting all git users on Windows and Mac OSX operating systems. Github says this:
The vulnerability concerns Git and Git-compatible clients that access Git repositories in a case-insensitive or case-normalizing filesystem. An attacker can craft a malicious Git tree that will cause Git to overwrite its own .git/config file when cloning or checking out a repository, leading to arbitrary command execution in the client machine. Git clients running on OS X (HFS+) or any version of Microsoft Windows (NTFS, FAT) are exploitable through this vulnerability. Linux clients are not affected if they run in a case-sensitive filesystem.
We strongly encourage all users of GitHub and GitHub Enterprise to update their Git clients as soon as possible, and to be particularly careful when cloning or accessing Git repositories hosted on unsafe or untrusted hosts.
If you’re using homebrew, the process is very very simple:
brew upgrade git
You can download the latest clients for windows and OSX from the links provided. They have been patched for the vulnerability already.
The most important offering at a restaurant is not the food. Its the experience while at the restaurant that makes a person go visiting again. Or swoon about it on social media! Good food is just, “so to speak”, the icing on the cake!
Thats why I pay you a premium for the experience!
When you forget something as essential as a customer’s order, the tastiest of dishes at your establishment takes a back seat over a spoilt evening for the people at the table!
Apologize genuinely, Make quick amends and move on.
In the days of social media and instant feedback, its as easy to keep a good face as it is to tumble and fall.
