In order to find out whether one of your users has vulnerable preferences, you can run the following query on the Roundcube user database:

SELECT * FROM users WHERE preferences LIKE ‘%generic_message_footer%’

If this returns any results, you should block that user because he or she most likely tried to exploit your system.
