    Package        : awstats
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem-Type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0363
    Debian Bug     : 294488
    
    In addition to CAN-2005-0116 more vulnerabilities have been found in
    awstats, a powerful and featureful web server log analyzer with a CGI
    frontend.  Missing input sanitising can cause arbitrary commands to be
    executed.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 4.0-0.woody.2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.2-1.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your awstats package.
