+Git v2.4.10 Release Notes
+Fixes since v2.4.9
+ * xdiff code we use to generate diffs is not prepared to handle
+ extremely large files. It uses "int" in many places, which can
+ overflow if we have a very large number of lines or even bytes in
+ our input files, for example. Cap the input size to soemwhere
+ around 1GB for now.
+ * Some protocols (like git-remote-ext) can execute arbitrary code
+ found in the URL. The URLs that submodules use may come from
+ arbitrary sources (e.g., .gitmodules files in a remote
+ repository), and can hurt those who blindly enable recursive
+ fetch. Restrict the allowed protocols to well known and safe
+ ones.
