Secure 1 field php form - help

Postby Davidjohny » Thu Apr 05, 2012 9:31 am

I have a website with an online email newsletter subscription form in PHP.

Current status:

Step1/- A visitor fills in his email address.
Step 2/- Next, I get visitor email address inside my INBOX.

Current PHP form consist of two pages

[[[ Page with PHP Form Code | Page NO.1 Formpage.php ]]]

<form name="myform" method="post" action="SEND.php"><br> <br />
<input name="email" type="text" id="email" />
<br />
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
[[[ Confirmation Page Code | Page NO.2 SEND.php ]]]

$email = $_REQUEST['email'] ;
mail( "", "Newsletter Request", "From: $email" );
I have heard about php code injection, malicious script and spam.
How can I secure this simple php two pages form?

Best wishes,
