Apache mod_fcgid module fcgid_header_bucket_read() buffer overflow
|apache-fcgid-bo (63303)||High Risk|
he Apache mod_fcgid module is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the fcgid_header_bucket_read() function. By sending specially-crafted FastCGO data, a local attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of mod_fcgid (2.3.6 or later), available from the Apache Software Foundation Web site. See References.
