Tell them that there are two ways to deal with the situation.  The first
is that they can simply move their cgi-bin directory out of DocumentRoot.
If they do that, the problme will vanish.

Alternatively, if they think they can't move the directory, they can just
drop a .htaccess file in the directory which says

DefaultType application/x-httpd-cgi
Options ExecCGI

(or, alternatively, add those to the <Directory> section for that directory
in access.conf).  This should also make the problem vanish.
