Comment 1 Jan Lieskovsky 2008-08-20 09:57:05 EDT
CVE-2008-3714: This issue affects the versions of the awstats package
as shipped with Fedora 8, Fedora 9 and version of the awstats package,
as shipped within the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) project.
Comment 3 Aurelien Bompard 2008-08-21 16:56:11 EDT
I am having issues accessing the Fedora CVS server to update the package. I know the Infrastructure team is fixing a pretty big problem, is there any way we could update this package ?
Comment 4 Tomas Hoger 2008-08-22 02:29:44 EDT
Aurelien, there's not alternate way at the moment, afaik.  So we'll have to wait until infrastructure is restored again, which will hopefully happen soon now.
Comment 5 Tim Jackson 2008-08-23 04:41:40 EDT
For some reason an EPEL5 bug didn't get opened so I created bug #459865. Can't
work out how to make it Fedora contributor-only though.
