Scientific Linux Security Update : sqlite on SL6.x i386/x86_64 (20150817)

high Nessus Plugin ID 85501
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


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.


Update the affected packages.
