Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-12-03 17:22:27 UTC
It was discovered that the upstream patch for cross-site scripting (XSS) issue in awstats known as CVE-2008-3714 does not completely resolve the problem and it still allows injection of quote characters.

Improved patch is available in the Debian BTS:
  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=495432#21

It strips quotes only after URL-decoding %-escaped strings was done, rather than before.

Patch is included in the Debian security advisory DSA-1679-1:
  http://www.debian.org/security/2008/dsa-1679
