Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6566-1
January 03, 2024

sqlite3 vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in SQLite.

Software Description:
- sqlite3: C library that implements an SQL database engine


It was discovered that SQLite incorrectly handled certain protection
mechanisms when using a CLI script with the --safe option, contrary to
expectations. This issue only affected Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. (CVE-2022-46908)

It was discovered that SQLite incorrectly handled certain memory operations
in the sessions extension. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue
to cause SQLite to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2023-7104)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 23.10:
   libsqlite3-0                    3.42.0-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 23.04:
   libsqlite3-0                    3.40.1-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
   libsqlite3-0                    3.37.2-2ubuntu0.3

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
   libsqlite3-0                    3.31.1-4ubuntu0.6

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

   CVE-2022-46908, CVE-2023-7104
