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.
