1510455: CVE-2017-15298 git: Mishandling layers of tree objects

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Git through 2.14.2 mishandles layers of tree objects, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted repository, aka a Git bomb. This can also have an impact of disk consumption; however, an affected process typically would not survive its attempt to build the data structure in memory before writing to disk.
