 Browser calls CGI C function which sets an env var and call a c function crashes
I just wonder if this could be a Unix environment Security issue:

A CGI C program set an environment variable  used by a C function (external
library) to generate a crypted code.

From the shell evrything works fine. From the browser the program crashes.

When I set the env var to a bad value, the CGI runs well when called by the
browser but the code is not generated.

Could this be either a security issue or a Unix environment issue ?

Thanks for your answers.
