SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA 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).
