Package        : sqlite3
Version        : 3.8.7.1-1+deb8u3
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-20346


Security experts at Tencent’s Blade security team have discovered a
critical vulnerability in SQLite database software (nicknamed "Magellan").

The "Magellan" remote code execution vulnerability has now been fixed by
adding extra defenses against strategically corrupt databases to fts3/4.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
3.8.7.1-1+deb8u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.
