This is a security-fix for CVE-2014-9390, which affects users on Windows and Mac OS X
but not typical UNIX users.Â A set of new service releases 126.96.36.199412180340-r and
188.8.131.52412180710-r are published and they contain the same fix.
Various implementations and ports, including Git for Windows, Git OS X installer,
JGit & EGit, libgit2 (and Visual Studio which uses it) have been updated at the same time.
Please update your JGit & EGit if you are on Windows or Mac OS X.
