    A vulnerability has been found in Apache mod_fcgid.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
    following problem:
    
    CVE-2010-3872
    
      A stack overflow could allow an untrusted FCGI application to cause
      a server crash or possibly to execute arbitrary code as the user
      running the web server.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed
    in version 2.2-1+lenny1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), and the testing distribution
    (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.3.6-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libapache2-mod-fcgid packages.
