Package        : awstats
Vulnerability  : cross-site scripting
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-3714
Debian Bug     : 495432

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

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.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch

    Size/MD5 checksum:    20369 bbe38406f0402fd5b7be2d0a427223c8
    Size/MD5 checksum:     1079 2fd97dfcfcbf48cbe0e4a1a431cb43bd
    Size/MD5 checksum:  1041837 af6cbfbf470eb45f5238501813d6d1c6

Architecture independent packages:
    Size/MD5 checksum:   837326 878a4f0ab2ccb36c324c0c171a6a39b5

  These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
  its next update.
