Package        : awstats
CVE ID         : CVE-2017-1000501
Debian Bug     : 885835

The cPanel Security Team discovered that awstats, a log file analyzer,
was vulnerable to path traversal attacks. A remote unauthenticated
attacker could leverage that to perform arbitrary code execution.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 7.2+dfsg-1+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
version 7.6+dfsg-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your awstats packages.

For the detailed security status of awstats please refer to
its security tracker page at:
