Package        : libapache2-mod-fcgid
Vulnerability  : stack overflow
Problem type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2010-3872

A vulnerability has been found in Apache mod_fcgid.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problem:


  A stack overflow could allow an untrusted FCGI application to cause
  a server crash or possibly to execute arbitrary code as the user
  running the web server.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed
in version 2.2-1+lenny1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), and the testing distribution
(squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libapache2-mod-fcgid packages.
