Debian Updated package.
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA 682-1                     security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/                             Martin Schulze
February 15th, 2005                     http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package        : awstats
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-0363
Debian Bug     : 294488

In addition to CAN-2005-0116 more vulnerabilities have been found in
awstats, a powerful and featureful web server log analyzer with a CGI
frontend.  Missing input sanitising can cause arbitrary commands to be
executed.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 4.0-0.woody.2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.2-1.2.

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 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.
