CVE-2016-4340: Privilege escalation via "impersonate" feature in existing v14.0/1 GitLab deployments

It has come to our attention that existing deployments of TurnKey GitLab (versions 14.0 & 14.1) are vulnerable to CVE-2016-4340, a critical security issue that allows authenticated users to escalate their privileges to that of an Administrator.

This issue has been fixed with many others by the GitLab project, as detailed in the 2016-05-02 GitLab Security Advisory.

Due to the seriousness of the issue, new builds of TurnKey GitLab have been published today so new deployments are not vulnerable.
