So if you have javascript enabled in * this PoC works in demo-page: and I also tested this in version 1.2.4 (modified 2011-08-09) and it works as stored XSS. Changelog for 1.2.4 says:

Version 1.2.4 (08 Aug 2011)
 - Fixed XSS vulnerability: malicious javascript in event descriptions submitted
   by public can do bad things (create admin account, delete events, etc.)
   when the pending event is viewed by the admin.
 - Fixed bug: PHP warnings on search
 - Removed PHP warnings
 - Bug fix: undefined function date_default_timezone_set in older versions
   of PHP.

I can't find release 1.2.5 from SF project-page nor in or in news. If the code indeed has stored XSS in versions 1.2.3 and 1.2.4 there probably is more of them. SHA256 for WebCalendar-1.2.4.tar.gz is: 09dea6511bf692f08e08a1a6088e547517a11ba746dde6b5e2cd57bb0081cfee

At the moment download counts:
1.2.4 zip 8644
1.2.4 tar.gz 1838

Definitely needs a 2012 CVE-identifier.
