Package        : hsqldb1.8.0
CVE ID         : CVE-2023-1183

Gregor Kopf of Secfault Security GmbH discovered that HSQLDB, a Java SQL
database engine, allowed the execution of spurious scripting commands in
.script and .log files. Hsqldb supports a "SCRIPT" keyword which is normally
used to record the commands input by the database admin to output such a
script. In combination with LibreOffice, an attacker could craft an odb
containing a "database/script" file which itself contained a SCRIPT command
where the contents of the file could be written to a new file whose location
was determined by the attacker.

For the oldstable distribution (bullseye), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.8.0.10+dfsg-10+deb11u1.

For the stable distribution (bookworm), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.8.0.10+dfsg-11+deb12u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your hsqldb1.8.0 packages.
