Description Adam Mariš 2015-12-22 05:43:15 EST
It was found that versions of rubygem-mail prior to 2.6.0 are vulnerable to SMTP injection via recipient email addresses. Mail module does not validate nor sanitize given recipient addresses and does not impose a length limit on email addresses. An attacker can send long spam message via recipient address unless there is a limit on the application's side. This vulnerability affects only the applications that lack input validation.
