- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : php-mail
Vulnerability : programming error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : No CVE id yet

It was discovered that php-mail, a PHP PEAR module for sending email,
has insufficient input sanitising, which might be used to obtain
sensitive data from the system that uses php-mail.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.14-1+lenny1.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.6-2+etch1.

For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.14-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your php-mail packages.
