Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2015:226 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : fcgi Date : May 4, 2015 Affected: Business Server 1.0


Problem Description:

Updated fcgi packages fix security vulnerability:

FCGI does not perform range checks for file descriptors before use of the FD_SET macro. This FD_SET macro could allow for more than 1024 total file descriptors to be monitored in the closing state. This may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack memory corruption, and infinite loop or daemon crash) by opening many socket connections to the host and crashing the service (CVE-2012-6687).
