1546386: CVE-2018-7187 golang: arbitrary command execution via VCS path

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

The "go get" implementation in Go 1.9.4, when the -insecure command-line option is used, does not validate the import path (get/vcs.go only checks for "://" anywhere in the string), which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via a crafted web site.
