    It was discovered that the Apache FCGID module, a FastCGI implementation,
    did not properly enforce the FcgidMaxProcessesPerClass resource limit,
    rendering this control ineffective and potentially allowing a virtual
    host to consume excessive resources.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:2.3.6-1+squeeze1.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem will be fixed soon.
