    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.

      These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
      its next update.
