Debian Security Advisory DSA-2778-1 security@debian.org

Package : libapache2-mod-fcgid
Vulnerability : heap-based buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-4365

Robert Matthews discovered that the Apache FCGID module, a FastCGI
implementation for Apache HTTP Server, 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.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.3.6-1+squeeze2.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.3.6-1.2+deb7u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:2.3.9-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libapache2-mod-fcgid packages.
