CVE-2006-2237: awstats arbitrary code execution vulnerability
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
awstats < 6.6 has reportedly an arbitrary code execution vulnerability, fixed in
upstream 6.6. No CVE id yet (I've mailed them), but here's more info:
Awstats 6.6 is still in beta and did not work for me (update gave "Use of
uninitialized value in substitution (s///) at ..."), so I backported the fix
from CVS instead (it's a two-liner).
FC-5 and FC-4 versions building, devel is updated to 6.6 and I'll keep it
updated when a new beta arrives.
It appears that this is not fixed; the problem is in the unsanitized "migrate"
query string parameter.
OK, strangely the files in the 6.6 beta tarball are more recent than what I got
from CVS... And they include the proper fix, which I've backported.
Patch updated, builds requested for FC-5 and FC-4.
Is there a way to contact Fedora Legacy ? The patch should apply on FC-3 and
with possible small modifications to older releases. I could just update FC-3
and request the build, but I have no FC-3 machines to test it on.
