Subject Re: [users@httpd] CGI receives SIGTERM
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2006 17:46:56 GMT
Actually it is more subtle. Even during execution, apache starts the timer
during start of header, and start of body. So a malicious script could
potentially
give data in trickles to restart these timers, but my point was that apache
definetly takes care of runaway cgi scripts even in execution (as long
as it doesn't trick the server as mentioned above).

BTW I did not have any issues - I was just responding to the original
comment that apache does not handle runaway scripts which is not true.
