Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : fcgi (MDVSA-2015:226)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83250
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated 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).
SolutionUpdate the affected fcgi, lib64fcgi0 and / or lib64fcgi0-devel packages.
