The 2.17 series release notes contain important changes in this release series.
- HIGH: The legacy avatar upgrade functionality was vulnerable to a Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) vulnerability when fetching image content from third-party avatar services. This could allow an attacker to make GET requests to internal services reachable from the GitHub Enterprise deployment.
- LOW: The
script-src: 'unsafe-inline' CSP header was applied to all paths for Enterprise Manager.
- Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.
- Promoting a replica in an active HA environment could fail to properly apply configuration changes and remove a pre-flight check holding page.
- In certain cluster configurations, background jobs are unable to communicate with local storage services.
- MySQL replication lag could rise significantly on high traffic instances during times of peak user activity.
- The Google Accounts Daemon and
google_set_hostname DHCP hook are now disabled on Google Cloud Platform images.
- GitHub Enterprise Server is now available in the eu-north-1 AWS region.
- MySQL database seeding progress is reported during replication setup and recorded in the configuration log.
- On a freshly set up GitHub Enterprise Server without any users, an attacker could create the first admin user.
- Custom firewall rules aren't maintained during an upgrade.
- Subversion (SVN) checkout may timeout while the repository data cache is being built. In most cases, subsequent svn checkout attempts will succeed.
- Git LFS tracked files uploaded through the web interface are incorrectly added directly to the repository.
- Issues cannot be closed if they contain a permalink to a blob in the same repository where the file path is longer than 255 characters.
- Lines in gists are not selectable.
- When using Let's Encrypt with a new installation, an error can occur when creating a new Let's Encrypt account.
- When "Users can search GitHub.com" is enabled with GitHub Connect, issues in private and internal repositories are not included in GitHub.com search results.
