The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201207-09
(mod_fcgid: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in mod_fcgid:
An error in the 'fcgid_header_bucket_read()' function in
fcgid_bucket.c could cause a stack-based buffer overflow
An error in the 'is_spawn_allowed() function in fcgid_spawn_ctl.c
prevents Apache from recognizing the FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass
directive for a virtual host (CVE-2012-1181).
A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker could send specially crafted HTTP
requests, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
