Description


Emory University has reported some vulnerabilities in AWStats Totals, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks or to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) Input passed via the "month" and "year" parameters is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

2) Input passed via the "sort" parameter to the "multisort()" function is not properly sanitised before being used to generate PHP code. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP commands by constructing specially crafted "sort" parameters.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.15.


Solution:
Update to version 1.15.
