Comment 5 Vasyl Kaigorodov 2015-04-28 13:36:13 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2015-3415 to
the following vulnerability:

Name: CVE-2015-3415
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-3415
Assigned: 20150424
Reference: https://www.sqlite.org/src/info/02e3c88fbf6abdcf3975fb0fb71972b0ab30da30

The sqlite3VdbeExec function in vdbe.c in SQLite before 3.8.9 does not
properly implement comparison operators, which allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid free
operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
CHECK clause, as demonstrated by CHECK(0&O>O) in a CREATE TABLE

Comment 7 Siddharth Sharma 2015-07-03 09:03:27 UTC
RHEL 5 and 6 are *NOT affected by this flaw as the code affected by this CVE is not present in the sqlite package shipped for these products.

Comment 10 Jan Staněk 2015-07-23 11:17:00 UTC
