How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:9 git to version 1:2.11.0-3+deb9u2 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream git package. See How to fix? for Debian:9 relevant versions.

Git before 2.10.5, 2.11.x before 2.11.4, 2.12.x before 2.12.5, 2.13.x before 2.13.6, and 2.14.x before 2.14.2 uses unsafe Perl scripts to support subcommands such as cvsserver, which allows attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via shell metacharacters in a module name. The vulnerable code is reachable via git-shell even without CVS support.
