Joomla Security Announcement: PHPMailer Security Advisory

Hi Guys,

There's a high priority security issue occurred on the third-party PHPMailer that distributed with Joomla! versions up to 3.6.5. All PHPMailer library versions are vulnerable to a remote code execution vulnerability.

Through the JMail class, there are additional validation which execute this vulnerability impractical within the Joomla environment. Extensions which mass a separate version of PHPMailer or do not use the Joomla API to send email may be vulnerable to this issue.


Joomla users: No action required, the updated library will be included in the next scheduled release and additional mechanisms exist in Joomla core to prevent triggering the vulnerability.

Separate PHPMailer users: upgrade to 5.2.18 or newer as soon as possible.
