Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 : awstats vulnerability (USN-285-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

AWStats did not properly sanitize the 'migrate' CGI parameter. If the
update of the stats via web front-end is allowed, a remote attacker
could execute arbitrary commands on the server with the privileges of
the AWStats server.

This does not affect AWStats installations which only build static
pages.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected awstats package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.1
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
Public Exploit Available : true
