Hi everybody,
be aware that with this security patch you override some modifications 
made to root files. I just experienced  an error after applying the sec 
patch with the only plugin that i have installed, the vical1.1 plugin.
So i don´t know if this is an issue with other plugins.
The export .ics file gets printed out within the browser instead of 
being putted out as a downloadable vtiger-calendar.zip
Doing a diff between the involved files showed me that these changes 
have to be made if you already have the vical plugin installed andf then 
apply the sceurity patch.
The changes have to be made to 1 file out of those who come with 

in index.php (vTiger 5.04 + vical, no sec patch) these lines are not 
there anymore in the new index.php after applying the security patch so 
these code changes have to be made manually:

304 +    ereg("^iCalExport",$action) ||
331 +    ereg("^iCalExport",$action) ||
338 -     if(ereg("^downloadfile", $action) || 
ereg("^fieldtypes",$action) || ereg("^mailmergedownloadfile",$action)|| 
338 +    if(ereg("^iCalExport", $action) || ereg("^downloadfile", 
$action) || ereg("^fieldtypes",$action) || 
ereg("^mailmergedownloadfile",$action)|| ereg("^get_img",$action))


I guess this procedure has to be done with every single plugin that was 
added BEFORE the security patch?

Is there something like a "general" way to apply vTiger ROOT patches 
(like this one) without destroying the plugin modifications or is the 
only way to apply the patch to do the manual changes on every single 
file that was realesed with the sec patch?

Best Regards
