Description

Fix CVE-2009-4023, CVE-2009-4111 PEAR's Mail class did not properly escape content of mail header fields, when using the sendmail backend. A remote attacker could send an email message, with specially crafted headers to local user, leading to disclosure of content and potentially, to modification of arbitrary system file, once the email message was processed by the PEAR's Mail class.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
