Description

The affected asset is vulnerable to this vulnerability ONLY if it is running one of the following modules: mod_cgid. Review your web server configuration for validation. 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.
