Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-04-04 05:39:01 EDT
MOPB-34-2007 describes a bug in the mail() function which allows a remote
attacker to inject arbitrary headers into generated mail, if the "subject"
parameter passed to the function uses untrusted (and unsanitized) script input;
this may allow the attacker to force the script to send bulk e-mail to
unintended recipients. (CVE-2007-1718, Impact: Low)
