Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Morgan Todd discovered that AWStats did not correctly strip quotes
from certain parameters, allowing for an XSS attack when running as a
CGI. If a user was tricked by a remote attacker into following a
specially crafted URL, the user's authentication information could be
exposed for the domain where AWStats was hosted.
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.
