A high-severity vulnerability has been disclosed in the SQLite database library, which was introduced as part of a code change dating all the way back to October 2000 and could enable attackers to crash or control programs.

Tracked as CVE-2022-35737 (CVSS score: 7.5), the 22-year-old issue affects SQLite versions 1.0.12 through 3.39.1, and has been addressed in version 3.39.2 released on July 21, 2022.

“CVE-2022-35737 is exploitable on 64-bit systems, and exploitability depends on how the program is compiled,” Trail of Bits researcher Andreas Kellas said in a technical write-up published today.

“Arbitrary code execution is confirmed when the library is compiled without stack canaries, but unconfirmed when stack canaries are present, and denial-of-service is confirmed in all cases.”
