+Git v2.14.5 Release Notes
+=========================
+
+This release is to address the recently reported CVE-2018-17456.
+
+Fixes since v2.14.4
+-------------------
+
+ * Submodules' "URL"s come from the untrusted .gitmodules file, but
+ we blindly gave it to "git clone" to clone submodules when "git
+ clone --recurse-submodules" was used to clone a project that has
+ such a submodule. The code has been hardened to reject such
+ malformed URLs (e.g. one that begins with a dash).
+
+Credit for finding and fixing this vulnerability goes to joernchen
+and Jeff King, respectively.

+In addition, this release also teaches "fsck" and the server side
+logic to reject pushes to repositories that attempt to create such a
+problematic ".gitmodules" file as tracked contents, to help hosting
+sites protect their customers by preventing malicious contents from
+spreading.
