Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Peter Vreugdenhil discovered a command injection vulnerability in
AWStats. As part of the statistics reporting function, AWStats
displays information about the most common referrer values that caused
users to visit the website. Referer URLs could be crafted in a way
that they contained arbitrary Perl code which would have been executed
with the privileges of the web server as soon as some user visited the
referrer statistics page.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected awstats package.
