DescriptionSecurity experts at Tencent’s Blade security team have discovered a critical vulnerability in SQLite database software (nicknamed 'Magellan').
The 'Magellan' remote code execution vulnerability has now been fixed by adding extra defenses against strategically corrupt databases to fts3/4.
