AWStats

Advanced Web Statistics (AWStats) is a free powerful Web server logfile analyzer (Perl script) that shows you all your Web statistics including visits, unique visitors, pages, hits, rush hours, search engines, keywords used to find your site, robots, broken links, and more. It works with both IIS 5.0+ and Apache Web server log files as a CGI and/or from the command line. It also supports around 40 languages.

            True, the first security hole in AWStats life was found in december but was fixed two days after.

            You can download stable 6.3 from AWStats web site to fix it.

            security problems
            I'd been using awstats for a while, and it seemed nice enough. However, there seems to be a pretty serious security hole:

            http://www.vuxml.org/freebsd/0f5a2b4d-694b-11d9-a9e7-0001020eed82.html

            http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_changelog.txt

            The changelog and the FreeBSD port seem to indicate that the bug is in 6.2, and is fixed in 6.3. However, freshmeat, sourceforge, and the BSD ports system (after a fresh cvsup) don't seem to show any signs that 6.3 actually exists.

            Some clarification from the developer would be very helpful. I'm looking for a different program now.

            works flawless and is not very hard to configure
