Today we are releasing version 8.14.1, 8.13.7 and 8.12.10 for GitLab Community Edition (CE) and
Enterprise Edition (EE).
This version contains an important security fix for a critical remote command
execution vulnerability in Mattermost, and we **strongly recommend** that anyone
running GitLab 8.14.0 with Mattermost enabled upgrade to this version
Please read on for more details.

## Remote Command Execution via Mattermost Service
Mattermost recently released a critical security update to address a remote
command execution vulnerability. Because the Omnibus version of GitLab 8.14.0
ships with Mattermost we are providing this emergency security patch.
Details of the vulnerability can be found at
### Versions affected
- 8.14.0
We **strongly recommend** that all installations running GitLab 8.14.0 with
Mattermost enabled upgrade immediately. Mattermost is *not* enabled by default.
### Workarounds
If you're unable to upgrade right away, you can secure your GitLab installation
against this vulnerability using the workaround outlined below until you have
time to upgrade.
#### Disable Mattermost
Login to your GitLab server(s) and perform the following:
1. Edit your `/etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb` file
1. Verify `mattermost['gitlab_enable']` is set to `false`
1. Save the file
1. Run `sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure`
Note: If you are running Mattermost on an external server and not through GitLab
this workaround will not be sufficient. Please consult your Mattermost
documentation on how to disable the service until you can install the patch.
## Security fixes

read-only access being able to create labels inside the project.
### Information Disclosure for Private Project Names

project names.
### Information Disclosure for Private Issues
An internal code review discovered that it was possible to enumerate the names

can be changed by adding a [`/etc/gitlab/skip-auto-migrations`
