One problem with AWStats is that it generates the reports on the fly.  
This can be wasteful of resources on your web host. It also makes it  
easy for arbitrary script execution bugs to creep in.

Other tools (pwebstats, IIRC) do analysis in a batch job to present  
you with static reports. The script is not called by the web server,  
all that's exposed to the world is static HTML documents.

For Squid, have a look at calamaris.

I can't check on other packages... my systems at the ANU are behind  
the switches that are out of commission for the day.
