Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : apache-mod_fcgid (MDVSA-2013:256)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 70523


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing a security update.


Updated apache-mod_fcgid package fixes security vulnerability :

Apache mod_fcgid before version 2.3.9 fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2013-4365).


Update the affected apache-mod_fcgid package.
