Simple Form Mail Relaying Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for Mail Relaying Vulnerability in Simple Form

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The target is running at least one instance of Simple Form which fails
to validate the parameters 'admin_email_to' and 'admin_email_from'.

A possible hacker, exploiting this flaw, would be able to send email through
the server (utilizing the form) to any arbitrary recipient with any
arbitrary message content. In other words, the remote host can be
used as a mail relay for things like SPAM.
