Package        : awstats
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2237

Hendrik Weimer discovered that specially crafted web requests can
cause awstats, a powerful and featureful web server log analyzer, to
execute arbitrary commands.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.4-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.5-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your awstats package.

- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given at the end of this advisory:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
