Amazon Linux 2 : sqlite (ALAS-2023-1911)

high Nessus Plugin ID 170434


The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.


The version of sqlite installed on the remote host is prior to 3.7.17-8. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2-2023-1911 advisory.

- 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 this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Run 'yum update sqlite' to update your system.
