SUSE Linux Security Vulnerability: CVE-2010-4699

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) January 17, 2011 February 16, 2015 July 03, 2017

Description

The iconv_mime_decode_headers function in the Iconv extension in PHP before 5.3.4 does not properly handle encodings that are unrecognized by the iconv and mbstring (aka Multibyte String) implementations, which allows remote attackers to trigger an incomplete output array, and possibly bypass spam detection or have unspecified other impact, via a crafted Subject header in an e-mail message, as demonstrated by the ks_c_5601-1987 character set.
