Debian Security Advisory DSA-2436-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst March 19, 2012 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : libapache2-mod-fcgid Vulnerability : inactive resource limits Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2012-1181 Debian Bug : 615814

It was discovered that the Apache FCGID module, a FastCGI implementation, did not properly enforce the FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass resource limit, rendering this control ineffective and potentially allowing a virtual host to consume excessive resources.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.3.6-1+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:2.3.6-1.1.

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