I saw a few blog posts and forum threads about this issue, but NONE was able to help me….

Yah!, syntax was okay….

perl -c 4KUYWRBjpMFod9i.cgi
4KUYWRBjpMFod9i.cgi syntax OK

I’v created a brand new file on /cgi-bin/ with some dummy filename and pumped a simple perl script on it…

# hello.pl -- my first perl script!
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Hello, world!\n";

I was able to run it successfully, so…. the issue wasn’t on the CGI/PERL/APACHE/FIREWALL/SUEXEC.
I guess that the 4KUYWRBjpMFod9i.cgi had some issue… even using file -i  it looked to be okay… I’v decided to copy the content of 4KUYWRBjpMFod9i.cgi to the new dummy cgi file … and it worked….

I guess that the issue was on the encoding of the original cgi…
