CVE-2007-1888

NameCVE-2007-1888
DescriptionBuffer overflow in the sqlite_decode_binary function in src/encode.c in SQLite 2, as used by PHP 4.x through 5.x and other applications, allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via an empty value of the in parameter. NOTE: some PHP installations use a bundled version of sqlite without this vulnerability. The SQLite developer has argued that this issue could be due to a misuse of the sqlite_decode_binary() API.

Notes

this is really just an "unsafe" API, not really a security issue against sqlite itself.
SQLite 3 no longer contains the affected function.
