[SECURITY] [DLA 1120-1] git security update

Package        : git
Version        : 1:
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-14867
Debian Bug     : 876854

joernchen discovered that the git-cvsserver subcommand of Git, a
distributed version control system, suffers from a shell command
injection vulnerability due to unsafe use of the Perl backtick
operator.  The git-cvsserver subcommand is reachable from the
git-shell subcommand even if CVS support has not been configured
(however, the git-cvs package needs to be installed).

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your git packages.
