Package        : libphp-phpmailer 
Vulnerability  : missing input validation
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3215

Thor Larholm discovered that libphp-phpmailer, an email transfer class
for PHP, performs insufficient input validition if configured to use
Sendmail. This allows the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include libphp-phpmailer.

For the stable distribution (etch) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.73-2etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.73-4.

We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-phpmailer package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 alias etch

  its next update.
