[SECURITY] [DLA 543-1] sqlite3 security update

Package        : sqlite3
Version        : 3.7.13-1+deb7u3
CVE ID         : CVE-2016-6153

It was discovered that sqlite3, a C library that implements a SQL
database engine, would reject a temporary directory (e.g., as specified
by the TMPDIR environment variable) to which the executing user did not
have read permissions.  This could result in information leakage as less
secure global temporary directories (e.g., /var/tmp or /tmp) would be
used instead.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your sqlite3 packages.
