I may have discovered a possible security issue in the way Kerio Connect's web client displays shared calendars.

When new events are created with caldav and their privacy is set to show only time and date, other caldav devices behave normally and show the event as "private" with the time information only. But in the web client all information is shown just as the event was set to public.

Example case:
Create 3 new events with Thunderbird's lightning.
Set the privacy in first as "public", second as "show time and date only" and the 3rd "private".

Use another account who can see the first user's account and view the calendar.

In caldav-devices the 2nd event will show up like the 3rd one, (marked "private") but in web client the 2nd shows up just like the 1st one.

We're currently running Kerio Connect 8.3.1.

Thunderbird/Lightning set "CLASS:CONFIDENTIAL" for "show date and time only", it seems this is handled unexpectedly by Connect.
