Package        : hsqldb1.8.0
Version        :
CVE ID         : CVE-2023-1183

Gregor Kopf of Secfault Security GmbH discovered that HSQLDB, a Java SQL
database engine, allowed the execution of spurious scripting commands in
.script and .log files. Hsqldb supports a "SCRIPT" keyword which is
normally used to record the commands input by the database admin to output
such a script. In combination with LibreOffice, an attacker could craft an
odb containing a "database/script" file which itself contained a SCRIPT
command where the contents of the file could be written to a new file whose
location was determined by the attacker.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your hsqldb1.8.0 packages.

For the detailed security status of hsqldb1.8.0 please refer to
