Description

A CRLF injection vulnerability in the mb_send_mail function in PHP before 5.1.0 might allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary e-mail headers via line feeds (LF) in the 'To' address argument, when using sendmail as the MTA (mail transfer agent).

The updated packages have been patched to address this issue. Once the new packages have been installed, you will need to restart your Apache server using 'service httpd restart' in order for the new packages to take effect.
