Debian DLA-1613-1 : sqlite3 security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 119848

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Security 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.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 3.8.7.1-1+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
