Hardened-PHP Project:
Dotdeb PHP Email Header Injection Vulnerability
November 14, 2006 @ 14:13:00

The Hardened PHP Project has released another vulnerability today for the Dotdeb PHP package repository software. The exploit allows for an email header injection.

It was discovered that the Dotdeb PHP packages are patched with a mail() protection patch that was originally created by Steve Bennett and is nowadays developed at choon.net. This patch adds an X-PHP-Script header to outgoing mails that contains the name of the server, the script and the calling IP.

An example of an attack via this issue would be injecting Bcc: headers into emails with sensitive information, copying them to themselves. The latest version of the package can be downloaded from their site. It is suggested that versions less than 5.2.0 Rev 3 upgrade immediately.
