    I know in some versions of Awstats there can be found exploits that may compromise the server... I just need to know it the last stable version ( 6.4 ) is enough secure and don't have this kind of bugs.

    thkz!

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're talking about the cPanel installed version, then AFAIK, yes. Since awstats.pl cannot be run unless you're actually logged into a cPanel account and apparently cPanel don't use the modules that have recently had exploits published, it should be OK.

    No, I'm talking about to install Awstats form the source (awstats.org).

    Ah. No idea then. I would have hoped that the latest versions should be OK :) A good idea is subscribing yourself to the BugTraq and VulnWatch mailing lists over at http://www.securityfocus.com/ if you aren't already. Or you can use their RSS feeds if you use that.
