This flaw requires that a user is able to upload arbitrary PHP code on the system, be a local user able to execute arbitrary PHP code, or have the ability to modify existing PHP code on the system. It also requires that the modified/arbitrary PHP code is executed with the php-cgi program, and the net result is that php-cgi crashes, effectively resulting in a self-denial of service.
