PHPMailer command execution Jun 11 2007 05:46PM

PHPMailer is a widely deployed utility class used in PHP application to
handle emails sent through sendmail, PHP mailto() or SMTP. It is used in
PHP applications such as WordPress, Mantis, WebCalendar, Group-Office
and Joomla. The last official release happened on July 11, 2005.

If you have configured PHPMailer to use sendmail it has a remote command
execution vulnerability due to a lack of input validation. sendmail is
queried through the popen function which is called with a string
constructed from non-escaped user input.
