Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : fcgi (MDVSA-2015:226)

This script is Copyright (C) 2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

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).

Solution :

Update the affected fcgi, lib64fcgi0 and / or lib64fcgi0-devel
packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
