Debian Security Advisory DSA 1058-1                    security@debian.org

Package        : awstats
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-2237
BugTraq ID     : 17844
Debian Bugs    : 364443 365909 365910

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.
