Description

Background

SQLite is a C library that implements an SQL database engine.

Description

An integer overflow was discovered in SQLite’s FTS3 extension.

Impact

A remote attacker could, by executing arbitrary SQL statements against a vulnerable host, execute arbitrary code.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All SQLite users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-db/sqlite-3.25.3"
