prevent_credential_leaks plugin

This plugin prevents an authenticated user (via SMTP AUTH) from sending their username and password out in a message (e.g. like replying to a phish).

If their username and password are detected inside the message body, then the message is rejected with the message:

Credential leak detected: never give out your username/password to anyone!

Note that if the username is qualified e.g. - then the plugin will search for both user and for maximum effectiveness.


No configuration is required. Simply add the plugin to your config/plugins file. It should be added before any other plugins that run on hook_data_post for maximum efficiency.
