The latest git installers linked to from http://git-scm.com/download/mac all seem to be for snow-leopard http://sourceforge.net/projects/git-osx-installer/files/git-2.2.1-intel-x86_64-snow-leopard.dmg/download

I'm using a mac 10.9.3 (which I believe is Mountain Lion). How do I obtain the security update for git (the need for which is described here http://wptavern.com/critical-git-vulnerability-patched-update-your-git-clients-immediately)

  • I think the snow leopard here just means that it was built or using the SDK for SL it will work on new versions of the OS – mmmmmm Dec 19 '14 at 17:40

For GitHub client for Mac, you have two options to get the latest version:

If you install the command line git through homebrew you have to type the following in your terminal:

brew update
brew upgrade

Apple command line git is on git version 1.9.3 (Apple Git-50) and there is no update available for the moment.

This is the official post from GitHub announcing the vulnerability.
