Regarding php, isn't it quite common to run it through mod_fcgid with a (bash) wrapper script? At least that's what apache wiki documents: https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/php-fcgid So that'd mean many php installations are affected even if they don't use subprocesses. I'm not sure if this wrapper can be avoided. -- Hanno Böck http://hboeck.de/ mail/jabber: hanno@...eck.de GPG: BBB51E42 Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (820 bytes)
