[SECURITY] [DLA 1224-1] mercurial security update

Package        : mercurial
Version        : 2.2.2-4+deb7u6
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-17458

A vulnerability was found in the Mercurial version control system
which could lead to remote arbitrary code execution.


    A specially malformed Mercurial repository could cause Git
    subrepositories to run arbitrary code in the form of a
    .git/hooks/post-update script checked into the parent repository.
    Typical use of Mercurial prevents construction of such repositories,
    but they can be created programmatically.

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

We recommend that you upgrade your mercurial packages.

these updates to your system and frequently asked questions can be
