Quote from www.xeoman.de:
"XeoPort imports emails from an IMAP or POP3 server into
your MySQL database. The text part and/ or the entire message
will be imported. An elegant way for Outlook Express users
(like me) to extract messages from Microsofts proprietary
binary format. I tried Access via Outlook but it turned out
to be buggy all the way. The additional script show.php
(folder goodie) uses Outlook Express to display the entire
message if you want to get your hands on attached files. It
can be used to dump the entire MySQL database back into Outlook
Express messages providing kind of a backup."

An attacker must send an Email with 7bit encoding to perform
Some other variables may also be affected.
Proof of Concept:
You must have register_globals enabled to run this script,

properly sanitised and change all input variables.
Use functions like PHP's htmlentities() and
