CPU time limit exceeded (core dumped) meaing

When I solve some questions in Interview Street, sometimes a message comes “CPU time limit exceeded (core dumped)” when we fail to pass a test case.

What is the actual meaning of this message?

AFAIK,on interviewstreet,Core dumped means you have a Segmentation Fault in your program.Check for index out of bounds or your code may be using too much memory.
