AWStats migrate Parameter Remote File Include Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to run a command using AWStats

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a CGI script that permits for the
execution of arbitrary commands.

Description :

The remote host is running AWStats, a free logfile analysis tool
written in Perl.

The version of AWStats installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'migrate' parameter before passing it to a Perl 'open()'
function. Provided 'AllowToUpdateStatsFromBrowser' is enabled in the
AWStats site configuration file, an unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected host,
subject to the rights of the web server user id.
