    Package        : awstats
    Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2005-1527
    Debian Bugs    : 322591 334833 336137
    
    Peter Vreugdenhil discovered that awstats, a featureful web server log
    analyser, passes user-supplied data to an eval() function, allowing
    remote attackers to execute arbitrary Perl commands.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.4-1sarge1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 6.4-1.1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your awstats package.
