<p>mod_fcgid is a binary-compatible alternative to mod_fastcgi with better
process management.
<p>Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in mod_fcgid:</p>
<li>An error in the "fcgid_header_bucket_read()" function in
fcgid_bucket.c could cause a stack-based buffer overflow
<li>An error in the "is_spawn_allowed() function in fcgid_spawn_ctl.c
prevents Apache from recognizing the FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass
directive for a virtual host (CVE-2012-1181).
<impact type="high">
<p>A local attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or cause a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker could send specially crafted HTTP
requests, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All mod_fcgid users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-apache/mod_fcgid-2.3.7"
