Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-07-22 14:17:21 EDT
MapServer upstream during security audit of MapServer v5.6 identified that
some of the mapserv CGI command-line debug arguments constitute a security
risk that could potentially be exploited. These arguments should be used
only by developers that use those command-line arguments to debug and test
the software.
