    Package        : sqlite3
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-3416
    Debian Bug     : 783968
    
    Michal Zalewski discovered that SQLite3, an implementation of an SQL
    database engine, did not properly handle precision and width values
    during floating-point conversions, leading to an integer overflow and a
    stack-based buffer overflow. This could allow remote attackers to cause
    a denial of service (crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
    
    Note that this issue had already been fixed for the stable distribution
    (jessie) as part of DSA 3252-1.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
    in version 3.7.13-1+deb7u2.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.7.1-1+deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 3.8.10.2-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.8.10.2-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.
