+Git v2.13.7 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.13.6
+ * 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).
+ Credit for finding this vulnerability and the proof of concept from
+ which the test script was adapted goes to Etienne Stalmans.
+ * It was possible to trick the code that sanity-checks paths on NTFS
+ into reading random piece of memory (CVE-2018-11233).
+Credit for fixing for these bugs goes to Jeff King, Johannes
+Schindelin and others.
