Git v2.14.5 Release Notes
This release is to address the recently reported CVE-2018-17456.
Fixes since v2.14.4
* Submodules' "URL"s come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but
we blindly gave it to "git clone" to clone submodules when "git
clone --recurse-submodules" was used to clone a project that has
such a submodule. The code has been hardened to reject such
malformed URLs (e.g. one that begins with a dash).
Credit for finding and fixing this vulnerability goes to joernchen
and Jeff King, respectively.
