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.

We recommend that you upgrade your php-mail packages.
