    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.
