GLSA-202210-40 : SQLite: Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 166739

Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202210-40 (SQLite: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

- A flaw was found in SQLite's SELECT query functionality (src/select.c). This flaw allows an attacker who is capable of running SQL queries locally on the SQLite database to cause a denial of service or possible code execution by triggering a use-after-free. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2021-20227)

- SQLite 1.0.12 through 3.39.x before 3.39.2 sometimes allows an array-bounds overflow if billions of bytes are used in a string argument to a C API. (CVE-2022-35737)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

All SQLite users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose >=dev-db/sqlite-3.39.2
