  • CRITICAL There was a remote code execution vulnerability that leveraged CVE-2018-11235 during the Pages build process. The Git package has been updated to address the vulnerability in the Pages build process. (updated 2018-05-30)
  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.
  • GitHub App user-to-server tokens generated for site-admins can access the internal GraphQL schema.

Bug Fixes

  • When booted into recovery mode, using ghe-set-password to reset the Management Console password would fail unless the haproxy-internal-proxy service was manually started.
  • collectd.log contained superfluous Elasticsearch plugin warnings.
  • ghe-migrator failed to import a GitHub.com migration archive when a pull request's requested reviewer was not a member of the organization.
  • Commits pushed to a closed pull request were not included when fetching the pull request's tracking branch.

Changes

  • Our unified Git proxy, babeld, now uses the BoringSSL cryptographic library to avoid lock contention issues in Git over SSH connections, which may have been encountered on large and busy appliances.

Known Issues

  • Images uploaded to issues save with an absolute URL, so they can be broken if the hostname changes.
  • On a freshly set up GitHub Enterprise without any users, an attacker could create the first admin user.
  • Custom firewall rules aren't maintained during an upgrade.
  • 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.
  • GitHub Enterprise clustering can not be configured without https.
  • Pull request review comments are missing from an import with ghe-migrator.
  • We incorrectly show a warning message, "You can't perform this action at this time", on team discussion pages. The message can be safely ignored.
  • On a repository that's been locked for migration using ghe-migrator, project boards are not exported.
  • Nameid-format matching on SAML response is too strict when value is "unspecified", which can cause an error with the "Another user already owns the account." message if the IdP changes NameID. (updated 2018-06-25)
  • The import of protected branches with ghe-migrator fails when the creator of the protected branch no longer exists on the source instance. (updated 2018-10-31)
  • The import of project boards with ghe-migrator fails when the creator of a card on the board no longer exists on the source instance. (updated 2018-11-21)

Security Fixes

  • LOW: Changed how certain types of exceptions are handled to prevent sensitive user data from being written to log files.

Bug Fixes

  • Resetting the self signed certificate, either manually or as a result of a hostname or IP change, would fail.

  • Updates the support of automatically-managed TLS certificates from Let's Encrypt to request a single-domain certificate when Subdomain Isolation is disabled, and a multi-domain (SAN) certificate when Subdomain Isolation is enabled. A GitHub Enterprise installation will no longer require a wildcard DNS record to use this feature when Subdomain Isolation is disabled.
  • Corrects calculation of hour and day of month for the crontab entry supporting renewals of automatically-managed ACME (Let's Encrypt) TLS certificates.
  • Users may be unable to sign in to GitHub Enterprise via a private GitHub Pages site if subdomain isolation is enabled.
  • After upgrading to 2.13.0, users could lose access to their LDAP mapped teams when LDAP sync was enabled.
  • The dashboard graphs at /dashboards/overview were empty.
  • Generated identicons for GitHub Apps and OAuth Apps responded with a 404 Not Found.

Backups and Disaster Recovery

GitHub Enterprise 2.13 requires at least GitHub Enterprise Backup Utilities 2.13.0 for Backups and Disaster Recovery.

Starting with Backup Utilities 2.13.0, version support is inline with that of the GitHub Enterprise upgrade requirements and as such, support is limited to three versions of GitHub Enterprise: the version that corresponds with the version of Backup Utilities, and the two releases prior to it.

For example, Backup Utilities 2.13.0 can be used to backup and restore all patch releases from 2.11.0 to the latest patch release of GitHub Enterprise 2.13. Backup utilities 2.14.0 will be released when GitHub Enterprise 2.14.0 is released and will then be used to backup all releases of GitHub Enterprise from 2.12.0 to the latest patch release of GitHub Enterprise 2.14.

Backup Utilities 2.11.4 and earlier offer support for GitHub Enterprise 2.10 and earlier releases.

Upcoming deprecation of Internet Explorer 11 support

Support for Internet Explorer 11 will be deprecated on September 13, 2018. There will be no changes in site functionality, but a warning banner will be displayed to Internet Explorer 11 users.

Upcoming deprecation of VMware ESX 5.5 support

Support for VMware ESX 5.5 will be deprecated on September 19, 2018.

Upcoming deprecation of GitHub Enterprise 2.10
