|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Apache mod_fcgid: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201402-09)
Date: February 07, 2014
A buffer overflow in Apache mod_fcgid might allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.
Apache mod_fcgid is a binary-compatible alternative to mod_fastcgi with
better process management.
Vulnerable: < 2.3.9
Unaffected: >= 2.3.9
Architectures: All supported architectures
Apache mod_fcgid fails to perform a boundary check on user-supplied
input, potentially resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker can supply a crafted input, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Apache mod_fcgid users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apache/mod_fcgid-2.3.9"
