MGASA-2021-0024 - Updated awstats package fixes a security vulnerability

Publication date: 14 Jan 2021
URL: https://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2021-0024.html
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases: 7
CVE: CVE-2020-29600

It was discovered that Awstats was vulnerable to path traversal attacks. A
remote unauthenticated attacker could leverage that to perform arbitrary code
execution. The previous fix did not fully address the issue when the default
/etc/awstats/awstats.conf is not present (CVE-2020-29600).
