Description

PHPFormMail v1.03.0 and earlier reads the recipient e-mail address directly from user-input, causing it to act as an open mail relay. It is known that spammers are actively exploiting this design flaw in the wild.

Solution(s)

  • upgrade-phpformmail-1_03_1

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
