It's been a rough past 30 days with the AEWA server with the hard drive crash at the beginning of March and then in the rush to rebuild I neglected to update the Awstats application and bingo, AEWA got hacked via the awstats.pl Remote Command Execution Vulnerability. In the process of the hack the main web pages was defaced. This hack was detected fairly quick and all is back to normal and patched. Sorry for the inconvenience.
