Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

awstats did not fully sanitize input, which was passed directly to the
user's browser, allowing for an XSS attack. If a user was tricked into
following a specially crafted awstats URL, the user's authentication
information could be exposed for the domain where awstats was hosted.
(CVE-2006-3681)

awstats could display its installation path under certain conditions.
However, this might only become a concern if awstats is installed into
an user's home directory. (CVE-2006-3682).

Solution :

Update the affected awstats package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
