Debian Security Advisory
DLA-2203-1 sqlite3 -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 05 May 2020
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2020-11655.
- More information:
It was discovered that there was a denial of service attack in the SQLite database, often embedded into other programs and servers.
In the event of a semantic error in an aggregate query, SQLite did not return early from the "resetAccumulator()" function which would lead to a crash via a segmentation fault.
SQLite through 3.31.1 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault) via a malformed window-function query because the AggInfo object's initialization is mishandled.
For Debian 8
Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 188.8.131.52-1+deb8u5.
We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.
