Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to upload PHP code using PHP iCalendar
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
an arbitrary file upload vulnerability.
The remote host appears to be running PHP iCalendar, a web-based iCal
file viewer / parser written in PHP.
The installed version of PHP iCalendar supports iCal publishing yet
does not properly restrict the types of files uploaded and places them
in a web-accessible directory. An unauthenticated attacker can
leverage this issue to upload files with arbitrary PHP code and then
run that code subject to the rights of the web server user id.
Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that
'$phpicalendar_publishing' be enabled in 'config.inc.php', which is
not the default.

Edit the application's 'config.inc.php' file and set
'$phpicalendar_publishing' to 0.
