Contact form security

Post by rsphaeroides » Sun Feb 24, 2008 10:31 pm

Is there any sort of protection against injection or other e-mail security issues on the Contact component?

Also are there suggested standard entries for the "Banned E-mail", "Banned Subject", and/or "Banned Text" fields to improve security?

Edit [forgot to mention I'm specifically interested in 1.5.1]

Standard Joomla! data input mechanisms are employed through the contact form, IE: html/script entity scrubbing and sanitation, SQL injection sanitation.
