Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in php-pear (Mail) :

Argument injection vulnerability in Mail/sendmail.php in the Mail package 1.1.14, 1.2.0b2, and possibly other versions for PEAR allows remote attackers to read and write arbitrary files via a crafted parameter, and possibly other parameters, a different vulnerability than CVE-2009-4023 (CVE-2009-4111).
