    Package        : libphp-phpmailer
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-10033
    Debian Bug     : 849365
    
    A functionally regression was discovered in some specific usage
    scenarios of PHPMailer following the security update of DSA-3750. New
    packages have been released which correct the problem. The original
    advisory text follows for referecen.
    
    Dawid Golunski discovered that PHPMailer, a popular library to send
    email from PHP applications, allowed a remote attacker to execute
    code if they were able to provide a crafted Sender address.
    
    Note that for this issue also CVE-2016-10045 was assigned, which is a
    regression in the original patch proposed for CVE-2016-10033. Because
    the origial patch was not applied in Debian, Debian was not vulnerable
    to CVE-2016-10045.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.2.9+dfsg-2+deb8u3.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 5.2.14+dfsg-2.2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-phpmailer packages.
