To trigger:

sendmail email@yourdomain.com < poc.eml
then visit RC panel, click on email.

Vulnerable code:

file: ./program/lib/enriched.inc

function enriched_color($body){
    $pattern = '/(.*)\<color\>\<param\>(.*)\<\/param\>(.*)\<\/color\>(.*)/ims';
        if (count($a)!=5) continue;

        //extract color (either by name, or ####,####,####)
        if (strpos($a[= explode(',',$a[2](2],',')){
            $color ='#';
            for($i=0;$i<3;$i++) $color.=substr($rgb[//just take first 2 bytes
            $color = $a[2]($i],0,2););

        //put it all together
(*)     $body = $a[style="color: '.$color.'">'.$a[3](1].'<span).'</span>'.$a[4];

    return $body;

To trigger this functionality, email's content-type must be equal to
