well, it seems the doc isn't clear enough

I just had a look at this page yesterday :
http://www.urec.cnrs.fr/cours/securite/Apache/chap4.html
where the author writes (in French) that the Apache server is provided
with cgi-examples and that ScriptAlias allows access to this directory
this doc may be old (1997) but perhaps this is not clearly in the docs
as far as I am concerned, I think that it is better to chmod u=rwx the cgi
examples and to let uncommented the ScriptAlias, adding a comment in the
conf.default file such as "If you uncomment the ScriptAlias directive,
you'll be allowed to run cgi script in this directory, but Apache is
provided with 3 cgi examples that you should remove on a server, except
for test purposes"
