Details

awstats did not fully sanitize input, which was passed directly to the user's
browser, allowing for an XSS attack. If a user was tricked into following a
specially crafted awstats URL, the user's authentication information could be
exposed for the domain where awstats was hosted. (CVE-2006-3681)

awstats could display its installation path under certain conditions.
However, this might only become a concern if awstats is installed into
an user's home directory. (CVE-2006-3682)
