Description

A broken FastCGI application can bring lighttpd into an endless loop and the server uses 100% cpu time. This can be a problem in shared hosting environments, where users can run custom fastcgi applications.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
