Package        : awstats
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2005-1527
Debian Bugs    : 322591 334833 336137

Peter Vreugdenhil discovered that awstats, a featureful web server log
analyser, passes user-supplied data to an eval() function, allowing
remote attackers to execute arbitrary Perl commands.

The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.4-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 6.4-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your awstats package.

sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
