PHP <= 5.2.1 Folded Mail Headers Email Header Injection Vulnerability



source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/23145/info


PHP is prone to an email-header-injection vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input when constructing email messages.

Exploiting this issue allows a malicious user to create arbitrary email headers, and then create and transmit spam messages from the affected computer.

The following versions are vulnerable:

PHP 4 up to and including 4.4.6
PHP 5 up to and including 5.2.1

<?php
   mail
("test@domain(dot)com""Test\r\n \nAnother-Header: Blub""Message");
?>
