awstats -- arbitrary command execution


Several input validation errors exist in AWStats that allow a remote unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary commands with the priviliges of the web server. These programming errors involve CGI parameters including loadplugin, logfile, pluginmode, update, and possibly others.

Additionally, the debug and other CGI parameters may be used to cause AWStats to disclose AWStats and system configuration information.
