Description

awstats.pl in AWStats 6.8 and earlier does not properly remove quote characters, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via the query_string parameter. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-3714.

Solution(s)

  • ubuntu-upgrade-awstats

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
