Description Andrej Nemec 2017-07-11 11:27:50 EDT
The getNodeSize function in ext/rtree/rtree.c in SQLite mishandles undersized RTree blobs in a crafted database, leading to a heap-based buffer over-read or possibly unspecified other impact.

Comment 2 Petr Kubat 2017-07-12 03:09:36 EDT
This seems to only affect sqlite versions older than 3.17 as, according to the sqlite developers and the reporter of the Ubuntu bug, the issue has been indirectly fixed in version 3.17.

For later versions the patch serves only to detect the issue earlier and to provide the user with a more useful error message.
