      Description

      The adobeconnect activity module uses the PHP's htmlentities function in some places.
      The htmlentities function accepts an optional third argument which defines encoding used in conversion. Prior to PHP 5.4, the default value for the mentioned argument was ISO-8859-1. It changed to UTF-8 since PHP 5.4. However since the minimum PHP version that is required to install Moodle is 5.3.3, the adobeconnect code should explicitly pass the encoding argument to htmlentities function whenever calling it. encoding should be equal to 'UTF-8'
