Morgan Todd discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in awstats,
a log file analyzer, involving the "config" request parameter (and
possibly others; CVE-2008-3714).

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
6.5+dfsg-1+etch1.

The unstable (sid) and testing (lenny) distribution will be fixed soon.

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 below:

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.
