joernchen discovered that the git-cvsserver subcommand of Git, a distributed version control system, suffers from a shell command injection vulnerability due to unsafe use of the Perl backtick operator. The git-cvsserver subcommand is reachable from the git-shell subcommand even if CVS support has not been configured (however, the git-cvs package needs to be installed).
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 1:220.127.116.11-1+wheezy6.
We recommend that you upgrade your git packages.
