Git - v2.30.3


This release addresses the security issue CVE-2022-24765.

Fixes since v2.30.2

  • Build fix on Windows.

  • Fix GIT_CEILING_DIRECTORIES with Windows-style root directories.

  • CVE-2022-24765:
    On multi-user machines, Git users might find themselves
    unexpectedly in a Git worktree, e.g. when another user created a
    repository in C:\.git, in a mounted network drive or in a
    scratch space. Merely having a Git-aware prompt that runs git status (or git diff) and navigating to a directory which is
    supposedly not a Git worktree, or opening such a directory in an
    editor or IDE such as VS Code or Atom, will potentially run
    commands defined by that other user.

authored by Johannes Schindelin.
