PHPMailer security bug affects various versions of Zen Cart

PHP is an open-source scripting language embedded into website HTML, and PHPMailer is a popular component for handling tasks such as email submission and registration forms.

Recently, the PHPMailer project received reports of a security bug, which could endanger Zen Cart sites using previous versions* of PHPMailer.

The bug is suspected to allow malicious users to send unauthorized email through unprotected versions of PHPMailer, and with an estimated 9 million people using this component, this is a worrying concept.

The good news is that Numinix can patch your system for a one-hour charge.

Alternatively, you can upgrade to version 1.5.5d using our Zen cart upgrade service. Contact us for more information.

* Versions older than the patched version released Dec 26, 2016
