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).

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.
