|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'sqlite'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'sqlite'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
SQLite is a C library that implements an 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 an 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.
All sqlite users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
sqlite on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
Please Install the Updated Packages.
