apache v2.0.44 + cgi ; securing cgi-support in apache

Is it possible to secure cgi in Apache v2.0.44 so that things like:


echo Content-Type: text/plain

cat /etc/passwd
simply don't work ?
I would like to restrict it to open only FILES IT OWNS and nothing else ... well the ideal situation would be setting a path on a virtual host basis where files could be accessed ... everything not being in that base path couldn't be accessed. Like path in the virtual host would be


and then files in the subpath of can be accessed ... like for instance


but files residing in


can't be accessed ...

Anybody has some kind of solution, hints, etc ?
