FreeBSD : SQLite3 -- Tempdir Selection Vulnerability (546deeea-3fc6-11e6-a671-60a44ce6887b)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91929


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


KoreLogic security reports :

Affected versions of SQLite reject potential tempdir locations if they are not readable, falling back to '.'. Thus, SQLite will favor e.g.
using cwd for tempfiles on such a system, even if cwd is an unsafe location. Notably, SQLite also checks the permissions of '.', but ignores the results of that check.


Update the affected package.
