1. Summary:

An update for mercurial is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact

which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

3. Description:

Mercurial is a fast, lightweight source control management system designed
for efficient handling of very large distributed projects.

Security Fix(es):

* A vulnerability was found in the way Mercurial handles path auditing and
caches the results. An attacker could abuse a repository with a series of
commits mixing symlinks and regular files/directories to trick Mercurial
into writing outside of a given repository. (CVE-2017-1000115)

* A shell command injection flaw related to the handling of "ssh" URLs has
been discovered in Mercurial. This can be exploited to execute shell
commands with the privileges of the user running the Mercurial client, for
example, when performing a "checkout" or "update" action on a
sub-repository within a malicious repository or a legitimate repository
containing a malicious commit. (CVE-2017-1000116)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mercurial Security Team for reporting
CVE-2017-1000115 and the Subversion Team for reporting CVE-2017-1000116.
