Added: 05/11/2006
CVE: CVE-2006-2237
BID: 17844
OSVDB: 25284

Background

AWStats is a web application for showing web, FTP, and mail server statistics.

Problem

AWStats uses the value of the **migrate** input parameter in a PERL open call without sufficient checks for invalid characters, allowing remote command execution.

Resolution

Upgrade to AWStats 6.6 or higher, or disable the **AllowToUpdateStatsFromBrowser** option in the AWStats configuration file.
