Description Murray McAllister 2014-07-17 09:06:08 UTC
The following flaw has been fixed in the Apache HTTP Server:

"A flaw was found in mod_cgid. If a server using mod_cgid hosted CGI scripts which did not consume standard input, a remote attacker could cause child processes to hang indefinitely, leading to denial of service."
