How to fix?

Upgrade Debian:9 git to version 1:2.6.1-1 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream git package and not the git package as distributed by Debian:9. See How to fix? for Debian:9 relevant fixed versions and status.

The (1) git-remote-ext and (2) unspecified other remote helper programs in Git before 2.3.10, 2.4.x before 2.4.10, 2.5.x before 2.5.4, and 2.6.x before 2.6.1 do not properly restrict the allowed protocols, which might allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a URL in a (a) .gitmodules file or (b) unknown other sources in a submodule.
