Package : libphp-phpmailer CVE ID : CVE-2016-10033 Debian Bug : 849365

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+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 5.2.14+dfsg-2.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-phpmailer packages.
