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.

A malicious third-party can give a crafted "ssh://..." URL to an unsuspecting victim, and an attempt to visit the URL can result in any program that exists on the victim's machine being executed. Such a URL could be placed in the .gitmodules file of a malicious project, and an unsuspecting victim could be tricked into running "git clone --recurse-submodules" to trigger the vulnerability.
