Description

CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2015:1635

SQLite is a C library that implements an SQL database engine. A large subset of SQL92 is supported. A complete database is stored in a single disk file. The API is designed for convenience and ease of use. Applications that link against SQLite can enjoy the power and flexibility of an SQL database without the administrative hassles of supporting a separate database server.

A flaw was found in the way SQLite handled dequoting of collation-sequence names. A local attacker could submit a specially crafted COLLATE statement that would crash the SQLite process, or have other unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-3414)

It was found that SQLite's sqlite3VdbeExec() function did not properly implement comparison operators. A local attacker could submit a specially crafted CHECK statement that would crash the SQLite process, or have other unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-3415)

It was found that SQLite's sqlite3VXPrintf() function did not properly handle precision and width values during floating-point conversions. A local attacker could submit a specially crafted SELECT statement that would crash the SQLite process, or have other unspecified impacts. (CVE-2015-3416)

All sqlite users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches to correct these issues.
