Critical open hole in PHP creates risks

Saw this on WHT yesterday. Glad I'm running in FCGI.

I just received an e-mail from my hosting-provider regarding some PHP security issues. My hosting provider is asking whether I am using PHP5 as CGI-Module ? Is this the case with XF-scripts ?

XenForo users can go to : admin.php?tools/phpinfo
And under "Server API" it will say something like: 'CGI/FastCGI'
