NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply to the upstream sqlite3 package. See Remediation section below for Ubuntu:16.04 relevant versions.

os_unix.c in SQLite before 3.13.0 improperly implements the temporary directory search algorithm, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of service (application crash), or have unspecified other impact by leveraging use of the current working directory for temporary files.

Remediation

Upgrade Ubuntu:16.04 sqlite3 to version 3.11.0-1ubuntu1.2 or higher.
