Debian DLA-543-1 : sqlite3 security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 91948

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It was discovered that sqlite3, a C library that implements a SQL database engine, would reject a temporary directory (e.g., as specified by the TMPDIR environment variable) to which the executing user did not have read permissions. This could result in information leakage as less secure global temporary directories (e.g., /var/tmp or /tmp) would be used instead.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', this problem has been fixed in version 3.7.13-1+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
