A security issue has been reported in Sylpheed-Claws, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The security issue is caused due to an error within /src/common/utils.c when handling an URI that starts with a space character. This can potentially be exploited to bypass the phishing URI checker due to the failure to identify certain fake or phishing URIs that began with a space.
The security issue has been reported in versions prior to 2.2.2.
