Enterprise Server 3.7 release notes

October 24, 2023

📣 Esta não é a versão mais recente do Enterprise Server. Use a versão mais recente para acessar a segurança mais atual, correções de bugs e melhoria de desempenho.

3.7.18: Security fixes

  • LOW: Due to an incorrect permission assignment for some configuration files, an attacker with access to a local operating system user account could read MySQL connection details including the MySQL password. [Updated: 2023-11-13]

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.7.18: Bug fixes

  • /var/log/lastlog was not copied over as a sparse file during ghe-upgrade, which could cause issues by using additional disk space.

  • ghe-repl-status did not identify Git replicas in certain incomplete states and incorrectly suggested that a failover could be performed safely. In some cases, this led to data loss during failover.

  • Repository exports using ghe-migrator or the REST API's operation for organization migrations could fail when a large number of commit comments or long commit comments were present.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, secret scanning suggested incorrect filters when viewing both open and closed alerts.

  • On an instance with multiple nodes, ghe-spokes status did not identify Git replicas in certain incomplete states, causing a false report that replication was in sync and leading to data loss or replication issues during failover.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, dry runs sometimes incorrectly reported no results for custom patterns.

3.7.18: Changes

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, administrators can identify the repository networks or gists that are common across a specified set of storage nodes using the spokesctl find-on-replicas command.

  • As a security measure, GitHub Pages does not build sites that contain symbolic links except when using custom GitHub Actions workflows. This change strengthens GitHub Pages's symbolic link detection.

3.7.18: Known issues

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • In a repository's settings, enabling the option to allow users with read access to create discussions does not enable this functionality.

  • Custom patterns for secret scanning have .* as an end delimiter, specifically in the "After secret" field. This delimiter causes inconsistencies in scans for secrets across repositories, and you may notice gaps in a repository's history where no scans completed. Incremental scans may also be impacted. To prevent issues with scans, modify the end of the pattern to remove the .* delimiter.

  • Following an upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or later, existing inconsistencies in a repository such as broken refs or missing objects, may now be reported as errors like invalid sha1 pointer 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000, Zero-length loose reference file, or Zero-length loose object file. Previously, these indicators of repository corruption may have been silently ignored. GitHub Enterprise Server now uses an updated Git version with more diligent error reporting enabled. For more information, see this upstream commit in the Git project.

    If you suspect a problem like this exists in one of your repositories, contact GitHub Enterprise Support for assistance.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • On an instance in a high-availability configuration, passive replica nodes accept Git client requests and forward the requests to the primary node.

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • When running ghe-config-apply, the process may stall with the message Deployment is running pending automatic promotion.

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support.

  • On an instance hosted in AWS, system time may lose synchronization with Amazon's servers after an administrator reboots the instance. [Updated 2023-11-10]

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, restoration of a backup using ghe-restore will exit prematurely if Redis has not restarted properly. [Updated 2023-12-05]

3.7.17: Security fixes

  • HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) is enabled within the Management Console.

  • To prevent commits from a detached repository from syncing to prior forks that are now in a separate repository network, GitHub Enterprise Server closes pull requests between repositories during detachment.

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.7.17: Bug fixes

  • When displaying a list of subdomains in the Management Console, the list included the outdated render subdomain, and excluded the newer containers, docker, notebook, and viewscreen subdomains.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, the Cluster-Balance daemon would run against jobs not specified in the configuration.

  • Duplicated intermediate commit trailers wont appear in pull request squash messages.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, and when using Safari, changing additional match requirements for a custom pattern did not retrigger custom pattern evaluation against a user submitted test string.

  • When viewing git blame data, the reviewer menu was loaded even when the suggested reviewer calculation timed out.

  • When migrating a repository from a GitHub Enterprise Server instance to another location, the ghe-migrator target_url command allows you to record the repository's new location. The new URL is displayed when you visit the main page of the repository in the web interface.

  • On an instance with subdomain isolation disabled, a notebook could not be loaded due to an extra / character in the URL path.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license and secret scanning enabled, in some cases, custom patterns would erroneously show no results for a dry run.

3.7.17: Changes

  • Site administrators can see improved diagnostic information about repositories that have been deleted.

  • When providing data to GitHub Support, GitHub Enterprise Server displays a notice describing how support data is used before uploading the support files.

3.7.16: Security fixes

  • An authorization/sensitive information disclosure vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that allowed a fork to retain read access to an upstream repository after the fork's visibility was changed to private. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty Program and assigned CVE-2023-23763. [Updated: 2023-09-01]

  • Packages have been updated to the latest security versions.

3.7.16: Bug fixes

  • syslog-ng configurations for containerized services caused errors for log forwarding services. The configurations have been removed.

3.7.11: Security fixes

  • MEDIUM: Scoped installation tokens for a GitHub App kept approved permissions after the permissions on the integration installation were downgraded or removed. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

3.7.11: Bug fixes

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, when upgrading the MySQL master node, the post-upgrade configuration run would take 600 seconds longer than required due to incorrect detection of unhealthy nodes.

  • In some situations on an instance with multiple nodes, Git replication failed to fully replicate repositories that had previously been deleted, which resulted in a warning in ghe-repl-status output.

  • If an instance had tens of thousands of deleted repositories, an upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 could take longer than expected.

  • On an instance with the dependency graph enabled, the correct path appears for manifests that originate from build-time submission snapshots.

3.7.11: Changes

  • People with administrative SSH access to an instance can configure the maximum memory usage in gigabytes for Redis using ghe-config redis.max-memory-gb VALUE.

3.7.11: Known issues

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conhecidos com atualizações de instância." [Updated: 2023-08-11]

  • After restoration of a backup created using GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.7.0, users may not be able to sign into the instance. To fix this issue, plus a bug that was preventing secret scanning encryption keys from being backed up, upgrade your backup host to use GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.7.1 and generate a new full backup using ghe-backup. For more information on using an existing backup, see "Problemas conhecidos com backups para sua instância." [Updated: 2023-07-31]

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • Instances experiencing a high sustained number of concurrent Git requests may experience performance issues. If you suspect that this issue is affecting your instance, contact GitHub Support. For more information, see "Criando um tíquete de suporte."

  • In a repository's settings, enabling the option to allow users with read access to create discussions does not enable this functionality.

  • Following an upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or later, existing inconsistencies in a repository such as broken refs or missing objects, may now be reported as errors like invalid sha1 pointer 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000, Zero-length loose reference file, or Zero-length loose object file. Previously, these indicators of repository corruption may have been silently ignored. GitHub Enterprise Server now uses an updated Git version with more diligent error reporting enabled. For more information, see this upstream commit in the Git project.

    If you suspect a problem like this exists in one of your repositories, contact GitHub Enterprise Support for assistance.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • On an instance in a high-availability configuration, passive replica nodes accept Git client requests and forward the requests to the primary node.

  • When using an outbound web proxy server, the ghe-btop command may fail in some circumstances with the error "Error querying allocation: Unexpected response code: 401".

  • If an instance is configured to forward logs to a target server with TLS enabled, certificate authority (CA) bundles that a site administrator uploads using ghe-ssl-ca-certificate-install are not respected, and connections to the server fail.

  • When running ghe-config-apply, the process may stall with the message Deployment is running pending automatic promotion.

  • An upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or 3.7 from 3.5 or earlier may be long running if a large number of deleted repositories exist. The performance of this upgrade has been improved in 3.6.14 and 3.7.11, however if you have tens of thousands of recently deleted repositories the upgrade could still take multiple hours. Deleted repositories are purged automatically after 90 days, but for a faster upgrade they can be purged manually. If you suspect you have tens of thousands of recently deleted repositories, and you are concerned about a long running upgrade, contact GitHub Enterprise Support for assistance purging deleted repositories.

3.7.8: Bug fixes

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, nested calls to reusable workflows within a reusable workflow job with a matrix correctly evaluate contexts within expressions, like strategy: ${{ inputs.strategies }}.

  • On an instance in a high availability configuration, a git push operation could fail if GitHub Enterprise Server was simultaneously creating the repository on a replica node.

  • In the Management Console's monitor dashboard, the Cached Requests and Served Requests graphs, which are retrieved by the git fetch catching command, did not display metrics for the instance.

  • After a site administrator exempted the @github-actions[bot] user from rate limiting by using the ghe-config app.github.rate-limiting-exempt-users "github-actions[bot]" command, running ghe-config-check caused a Validation is-valid-characterset failed warning to appear.

  • GitHub Actions (actions) and Microsoft SQL (mssql) did not appear in the list of processes within the instances monitor dashboard.

  • In some cases, graphs on the Management Console's monitor dashboard failed to render.

  • On an instance in a high availability configuration, if an administrator tore down replication from a replica node using ghe-repl-teardown immediately after running ghe-repl-setup, but before ghe-repl-start, an error indicated that the script cannot launch /usr/local/bin/ghe-single-config-apply - run is locked. ghe-repl-teardown now displays an informational alert and continues the teardown.

  • After an administrator used the /setup/api/start REST API endpoint to upload a license, the configuration run failed with a Connection refused error during the migrations phase.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, when a site administrator set maintenance mode using ghe-maintenance -s, a Permission denied error appeared when the utility tried to access /data/user/common/cluster.conf.

  • During configuration of high availability, if a site administrator interrupted the ghe-repl-start utility, the utility erroneously reported that replication was configured, and the instance would not perform expected clean-up operations.

  • On instances configured to use the private beta of SCIM for GitHub Enterprise Server, users' authentication with SSH keys and personal access tokens failed due to an erroneous requirement for authorization.

  • After a user imported a repository with push protection enabled, the repository was not immediately visible in the security overview's "Security Coverage" view.

  • Responses from the /repositories REST API endpoint erroneously included deleted repositories.

  • When a site administrator used ghe-migrator to migrate data to GitHub Enterprise Server, in some cases, nested team relationships would not persist after teams were imported.

  • If a repository contained a CODEOWNERS file with check annotations, pull requests "Files changed" tab returned a 500 error and displayed "Oops, something went wrong" in the "Unchanged files with check annotations" section.

  • On an instance with GitHub Actions enabled, if a user manually triggered a workflow using the REST API but did not specify values for optional booleans, the API failed to validate the request and returned a 422 error.

  • The CSV reports for all users and all active users, available from the site admin dashboard, did not consider recent access using SSH or personal access tokens.

  • In some cases on an instance with multiple nodes, GitHub Enterprise Server erroneously stopped writing to replica fileservers, causing repository data to fall out of sync.

  • On an instance with a GitHub Advanced Security license, if code scanning had been used while running GitHub Enterprise Server 3.4 or earlier, a subsequent upgrade from 3.5 to 3.6 or 3.7 could fail when attempting to add a unique index to a database table.

  • An enterprise owner could not enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for an instance if any enterprise owners had not enabled 2FA for their user accounts. [Updated: 2023-04-17]

  • On an instance with GitHub Packages enabled, after users pushed to the Container registry, the instance erroneously responded with a 429 Too Many Requests error in cases when the instance could accommodate the request. The limits have been raised, and users should receive this message less often. [Updated: 2023-05-30]

3.7.8: Changes

  • When the dependency submission API received a submission with one or more dependencies without a version, the dependency graph will now correctly report this fact.

  • To avoid a failure during a configuration run on a cluster, validation of cluster.conf with the ghe-cluster-config-check utility ensures that the consul-datacenter field for each node matches the top-level primary-datacenter field.

  • On an instance in a cluster configuration, when a site administrator sets maintenance mode on a single cluster node using ghe-maintenance -s, the utility warns the administrator to use ghe-cluster-maintenance -s to set maintenance mode on all of the clusters nodes. For more information, see "Habilitar e programar o modo de manutenção."

  • When a site administrator configures an outbound web proxy server for GitHub Enterprise Server, the instance now validates top-level domains (TLDs) excluded from the proxy configuration. By default, you can exclude public TLDs that the IANA specifies. Site administrators can specify a list of unregistered TLDs to exclude using ghe-config. The . prefix is required for any public TLDs. For example, .example.com is valid, but example.com is invalid. For more information, see "Configurando um servidor proxy Web de saída."

  • To avoid intermittent issues with the success of Git operations on an instance with multiple nodes, GitHub Enterprise Server checks the status of the MySQL container before attempting a SQL query. The timeout duration has also been reduced.

  • The default path for output from ghe-saml-mapping-csv -d is /data/user/tmp instead of /tmp. For more information, see "Utilitários de linha de comando."

3.7.2: Security fixes

  • HIGH: A path traversal vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that allowed remote code execution when building a GitHub Pages site. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need permission to create and build a GitHub Pages site on the instance. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty Program and has been assigned CVE-2022-46256.

3.7.2: Bug fixes

  • A race condition blocked upgrades to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or later until a site administrator retried the upgrade.

  • When a site administrator ran the ghe-repl-status command on a cache replica via the administrative shell (SSH), the command incorrectly reported overall Git and Alambic cluster replication status information as if it pertained only to cache replication.

  • When a site administrator ran the ghe-repl-sync-ca-certificates command from an instances primary node via the administrative shell (SSH), the command only replicated CA certificates from the instances primary node to a single replica node. The command did not replicate the certificates to all available replica nodes.

  • In a high availability configuration, after promotion of a replica to be the primary node, a site administrator could not force replication to stop on a secondary replica node using the ghe-repl-stop -f command.

  • When using repository caching with an instance in a high availability configuration, if a Git client used SSH instead of HTTPS for a repositorys remote URL, Git LFS would fetch objects from the instances primary node instead of the appropriate cache replica node.

  • Installation of GitHub Enterprise Server on the VMware ESXi hypervisor failed due to the generation of an OVA file with an invalid capacity value.

  • When users performed an operation using the API, GitHub Enterprise Server enforced repository size quotas even when disabled globally.

  • In some cases, searches via the API returned a 500 error.

  • Adding a collaborator to a user-owned fork of a private, organization-owned repository with triage, maintain, or custom access resulted in a 500 error.

  • In some cases, the page for setting up code scanning would erroneously report that GitHub Actions was not configured for the instance.

  • Dismissing a Dependabot alert that contained certain characters could result in a 400 error.

  • After a user's account was deleted from the instance, image attachments that the user uploaded in comments were no longer visible in the web interface.

  • On an instance that uses SAML for authentication, the Configure SSO dropdown menu appeared erroneously for personal access tokens and SSH keys.

  • An upgrade from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.5 to 3.7 could fail because the instance had not yet purged deleted repositories.

  • In a high availability or repository caching configuration, Unicorn services on nodes other than the primary node were unable to send log events to the primary node.

  • Fixes a bug in which a GHES log file could get filled very quickly and cause the root drive to run out of free space.

  • When viewing code scanning results for Ruby, an erroneous beta label appeared.

3.7.2: Changes

  • After an enterprise owner enables Dependabot alerts, GitHub Enterprise Server enqueues the synchronization of advisory data to ensure hourly updates from GitHub.com.

  • A user's list of recently accessed repositories no longer includes deleted repositories.

  • For participants in the private beta of SCIM for GitHub Enterprise Server, custom mappings for SAML user attributes are now supported.

3.7.1: Security fixes

  • HIGH: An improper neutralization of argument delimiters in a command vulnerability was identified in GitHub Enterprise Server that enabled remote code execution. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker would need permission to create and build GitHub Pages using GitHub Actions. This bug was originally reported via GitHub's Bug Bounty program and assigned CVE-2022-23740. [Updated: 2022-12-02]

  • HIGH: A check was added within Pages to ensure the working directory is clean before unpacking new content to prevent an arbitrary file overwrite bug. This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2022-46255.

  • MEDIUM: Updated CommonMarker to address a scenario where parallel requests to the Markdown REST API could result in unbounded resource exhaustion. This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2022-39209.

  • MEDIUM: Scoped user-to-server tokens from GitHub Apps could bypass authorization checks in GraphQL API requests when accessing non-repository resources. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty Program and has been assigned CVE-2022-23739.

  • MEDIUM: Pull request preview links did not properly sanitize URLs, allowing a malicious user to embed dangerous links in the instances web UI. This vulnerability was reported via the GitHub Bug Bounty program.

3.7.1: Bug fixes

  • If a GitHub Actions dependency uses a pinned SHA version, Dependabot will no longer mark the dependency as vulnerable.

  • Running the ghe-spokesctl command returned a failed to get repo metrics error.

  • Setting the maintenance mode with an IP Exception List would not persist across upgrades.

  • GitHub Pages builds could time out on instances in AWS that are configured for high availability.

  • Status details for the replication of Git LFS objects to repository cache replica nodes were not visible in the ghe-repl-status output on those nodes.

  • The audit log timestamp for Dependabot alert events returned the creation date of the alert instead of the timestamp when a user took action on the alert.

  • When accessing an instances JavaScript resources from behind a proxy, the browser displayed Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) errors.

  • If a user named a status check with leading or trailing spaces, the instance created a duplicate check if another check existed with the same name and no leading or trailing spaces.

  • If a user configured a pre-receive hook for multiple repositories, the instances Hooks page would not always display the correct status for the hook.

  • In some cases, an instance could replace an active repository with a deleted repository.

  • Git LFS objects in a repository with a cache replication policy would not be copied to cache replicas if the total number of objects in the repository exceeded 5,000.

  • After running migrations for the GitHub Enterprise Importer on an instance configured for high availability, replication of migration storage assets would not catch up.

  • Zombie processes no longer accumulate in the gitrpcd container.

  • On an instance with GitHub Packages configured, package upload and installation could fail for customers using a VPC endpoint URL for AWS S3 blob storage.

  • In some cases, after upgrading to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7.0, users may encounter Internal Server Error or 500 errors when initiating Git operations over SSH or HTTPS.

3.7.1: Known issues

  • After an administrator upgrades from GitHub Enterprise Server 3.7 or 3.8, to 3.9 or 3.10, MySQL may not start back up. For more information, see "Problemas conhecidos com atualizações de instância." [Updated: 2023-08-11]

  • After restoration of a backup created using GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.7.0, users may not be able to sign into the instance. To fix this issue, plus a bug that was preventing secret scanning encryption keys from being backed up, upgrade your backup host to use GitHub Enterprise Server Backup Utilities 3.7.1 and generate a new full backup using ghe-backup. For more information on using an existing backup, see "Problemas conhecidos com backups para sua instância." [Updated: 2023-07-31]

  • On a freshly set up GitHub Enterprise Server instance without any users, an attacker could create the first admin user.

  • Custom firewall rules are removed during the upgrade process.

  • 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.

  • Resource limits that are specific to processing pre-receive hooks may cause some pre-receive hooks to fail.

  • Actions services need to be restarted after restoring an instance from a backup taken on a different host.

  • In a repository's settings, enabling the option to allow users with read access to create discussions does not enable this functionality.

  • In some cases, users cannot convert existing issues to discussions.

  • During the validation phase of a configuration run, a No such object error may occur for the Notebook and Viewscreen services. This error can be ignored as the services should still correctly start.

  • Following an upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or later, existing inconsistencies in a repository such as broken refs or missing objects, may now be reported as errors like invalid sha1 pointer 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000, Zero-length loose reference file, or Zero-length loose object file. Previously, these indicators of repository corruption may have been silently ignored. GitHub Enterprise Server now uses an updated Git version with more diligent error reporting enabled. For more information, see this upstream commit in the Git project.

    If you suspect a problem like this exists in one of your repositories, contact GitHub Enterprise Support for assistance.

  • Instances experiencing a high sustained number of concurrent Git requests may experience performance issues. If you suspect that this issue is affecting your instance, contact GitHub Support. For more information, see "Criando um tíquete de suporte."

For more information, see "Habilitar e programar o modo de manutenção" and "Sobre a configuração de alta disponibilidade." [Updated: 2023-03-17]

  • An upgrade to GitHub Enterprise Server 3.6 or 3.7 from 3.5 or earlier may be long running if a large number of deleted repositories exist. Deleted repositories are purged automatically after 90 days, but for a faster upgrade they can be purged manually. If you suspect you have thousands of recently deleted repositories, and you are concerned about a long running upgrade, contact GitHub Enterprise Support for assistance purging deleted repositories. [Updated: 2023-05-09]

  • In rare circumstances, a small instance with both high availability and GitHub Actions configured may report that MSSQL replication is unhealthy after many upgrades with full upgrade packages. If you encounter this issue, contact GitHub Support. [Updated: 2023-08-24]

  • On an instance hosted in AWS, system time may lose synchronization with Amazon's servers after an administrator reboots the instance. [Updated 2023-11-10]
