    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.
