FreeBSD : SQLite3 -- Tempdir Selection Vulnerability (546deeea-3fc6-11e6-a671-60a44ce6887b)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

KoreLogic security reports :

Affected versions of SQLite reject potential tempdir locations if they
are not readable, falling back to '.'. Thus, SQLite will favor e.g.
using cwd for tempfiles on such a system, even if cwd is an unsafe
location. Notably, SQLite also checks the permissions of '.', but
ignores the results of that check.
