I am currently evaluating whether ICagenda is suitable for my purposes. In the course I discovered that event titles containing double quotes lead to errors. Example:
The event title is
Industrielle Praxis "Cloud Operations Workshop mit Bosch" (Workshop für Studierende)

This leads to the following generated html:
<div class="event ic-event ic-clearfix">
       <a href="/joomla/index.php/veranstaltungen-2/1-industrielle-praxis-cloud-operations-workshop-mit-bosch-workshop-fuer-studierende?date=2020-11-02-17-30" title="Industrielle Praxis " cloud="" operations="" workshop="" mit="" bosch"="" (workshop="" für="" studierende)"="">

I suppose the event title needs to be escaped using php htmlspecialchars. This might also be a security risk.

Thank you for this report!

I don't see any security risk here, as it's only in a html layout rendering function.

But it's missing to escape...

Attached a version with the patch!
