Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

An updated sqlite package that fixes one security issue is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

SQLite is a C library that implements a SQL database engine. A large subset of SQL92 is supported. A complete database is stored in a single disk file. The API is designed for convenience and ease of use.
Applications that link against SQLite can enjoy the power and flexibility of a SQL database without the administrative hassles of supporting a separate database server.

It was found that SQLite's sqlite3VXPrintf() function did not properly handle precision and width values during floating-point conversions. A local attacker could submit a specially crafted SELECT statement that would crash the SQLite process, or have other unspecified impacts.
(CVE-2015-3416)

All sqlite users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected sqlite packages.
