Description

It was discovered that there was a remote denial of service in libfcgi, a library for implementing the FastCGI web server protocol.

For Debian 6 Squeeze, this issue has been fixed in libfcgi version 2.4.0-8+deb6u1.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
