User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake A CRLF injection vulnerability in the mb_send_mail function in PHP before 5.1.0 might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary e-mail headers via line feeds (LF) in the "To" address argument, when using sendmail as the MTA (mail transfer agent).
 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDKSA-2005:238
 Package : php
 Date    : December 27, 2005
 Affected: 2006.0
 Problem Description:
 A CRLF injection vulnerability in the mb_send_mail function in PHP 
 before 5.1.0 might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary 
 e-mail headers via line feeds (LF) in the "To" address argument, when
 using sendmail as the MTA (mail transfer agent).
 The updated packages have been patched to address this issue.  Once the
 new packages have been installed, you will need to restart your Apache
 server using "service httpd restart" in order for the new packages to
 take effect.
