CWE ID 426


CVE-2024-22190 is a vulnerability in GitPython, a python library used for interacting with Git repositories. The vulnerability stems from an incomplete fix for CVE-2023-40590 and affects Windows users. When GitPython uses a shell to run git or runs bash.exe to interpret hooks, it employs an untrusted search path. This means that if either of these features are used on Windows, a malicious git.exe or bash.exe could be executed from an untrusted repository. The issue has been addressed in version 3.1.41 of GitPython. This vulnerability poses a high risk to organizations as it could lead to the execution of malicious code and compromise the integrity and confidentiality of their systems.
