Posts about Mercurial

Git(CVE-2017-1000117), Mercurial(CVE-2017-1000115, CVE-2017-1000116) and SVN(CVE-2017-9800) recently released fixes for vulnerabilities in their client-side applications that could lead to remote code execution on the victims machine.

Last week, we had an amazing 10th anniversary meetup for Mercurial! Sean Farley invited Facebook's Ryan McElroy told us about an exciting open source extension to Mercurial that the team at Facebook has been using for some time now. As with most commercial software endeavors, the code base at Facebook grows every day, and as a result specific operations can be time consuming. You can watch the talk here, or read my summary below.
