An updated sqlite package that fixes one security issue is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the
References section.

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.
