Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : sqlite3 (MDVSA-2015:217)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in sqlite3 :

SQLite before 3.8.9 does not properly implement the dequoting of
collation-sequence names, which allows context-dependent attackers to
cause a denial of service (uninitialized memory access and application
crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted COLLATE
clause, as demonstrated by COLLATE at the end of a SELECT statement
(CVE-2015-3414).

The sqlite3VdbeExec function in vdbe.c in SQLite before 3.8.9 does not
properly implement comparison operators, which allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid free
operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
CHECK clause, as demonstrated by CHECK(0 O>O) in a CREATE TABLE
statement (CVE-2015-3415).

The sqlite3VXPrintf function in printf.c in SQLite before 3.8.9 does
not properly handle precision and width values during floating-point
conversions, which allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (integer overflow and stack-based buffer overflow)
or possibly have unspecified other impact via large integers in a
crafted printf function call in a SELECT statement (CVE-2015-3416).

The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.
