fetch: Strip usernames from url's before storing them
When pulling from a remote, the full URL including username is by default added to the commit message. Since it adds very little value but could be used by malicious people to glean valid usernames (with matching hostnames), we're far better off just stripping the username before storing the remote URL locally. Note that this patch has no lasting visible effect when "git pull" does not create a merge commit. It simply alters what gets written to .git/FETCH_HEAD, which is used by "git merge" to automagically create its messages. Signed-off-by: Andreas Ericsson <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
