Updated git packages fix security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 03 Jun 2018
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 6
CVE: CVE-2018-11233 , CVE-2018-11235


It was possible to trick the code that sanity-checks paths on NTFS into
reading random piece of memory (CVE-2018-11233).

Submodule "names" come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but we blindly
append them to $GIT_DIR/modules to create our on-disk repo paths. This
means you can do bad things by putting "../" into the name. We now enforce
some rules for submodule names which will cause Git to ignore these
malicious names (CVE-2018-11235).
