Some vulnerabilities have been reported in A4Desk PHP Event Calendar, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks or compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "v" parameter in index.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local or external resources.
Successful exploitation with local files requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
2) Input passed to the "eventid" parameter in admin/index.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and verified.
