    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.
    
    
    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------
    
    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
            will install corrected packages
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
