So from what I understand, this issue is only related to the *sample*
code in php-openid, correct?

You also report that this code is in "use verbatim" in "the vast
majority of sites", yet looking at the Debian code base, the only
samples of that code I could find are in php-openid itself and the SAML
library:

https://codesearch.debian.net/search?perpkg=1&q=getTrustRoot

(jglobus seems to be a false positive there)

I have reviewed the usage of the openid.realm field in the Debian source
code and, in general, it doesn't seem to use the `Host:` header:

https://codesearch.debian.net/search?perpkg=1&q=openid.realm

Furthermore, I am not sure the attack works even on the theoritical
level: how would the user reach the proper website if the Host header is
changed?
