SecurityFocus reports:

Git is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability because it fails to properly handle some client requests.

Attackers can exploit this issue to cause a daemon process to enter an infinite loop. Repeated exploits may consume excessive system resources, resulting in a denial of service condition.
