Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Apache mod_fcgid: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201402-09)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 07, 2014
Bug(s): #487314
ID: 201402-09

Synopsis

A buffer overflow in Apache mod_fcgid might allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.


Background

Apache mod_fcgid is a binary-compatible alternative to mod_fastcgi with
better process management.


Affected Packages

Package: www-apache/mod_fcgid
Vulnerable: < 2.3.9
Unaffected: >= 2.3.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Apache mod_fcgid fails to perform a boundary check on user-supplied
input, potentially resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow.


Impact

A remote attacker can supply a crafted input, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Apache mod_fcgid users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/mod_fcgid-2.3.9"
