[SOJOBO-ADV-13-04] - PHP-Nuke 8.2.4 multiple vulnerabilities

I. * Information *
==================
Name : PHP-Nuke 8.2.4 multiple vulnerabilities
Software : PHP-Nuke 8.2.4 and possibly below.
Vendor Homepage : http://www.phpnuke.org/
Vulnerability Type : File Inclusion and Reflected Cross-Site Scripting
Severity : High (4/5)
Advisory Reference : SOJOBO-ADV-13-04 (http://www.enkomio.com/Advisories)
Credits: Sojobo dev team
Description: A File Inclusion and Reflected Cross Site Scripting vulnerability was discovered during the testing of 
Sojobo, Static Analysis Tool.

II. * Details *
===============
A) File Inclusion in mainfile.php [Impact: 4/5]

Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.

File: /html/index.php
15: require_once("mainfile.php");

File: /html/mainfile.php
90: if (!ini_get('register_globals')) { 
91:     @import_request_variables("GPC", "");
..
274: if ((isset($newlang)) AND (stristr($newlang,"."))) {
275:            if (file_exists("language/lang-".$newlang.".php")) {
..
277:                    include_once("language/lang-".$newlang.".php");

due to a call to the function 'import_request_variables' it is possible to create the variable $newlang with an 
arbitrary value and to allow the inclusion of an arbitrary local file.

A test request is: /index.php?newlang=/../../index

B) Reflected Cross Site Scripting in index.php (of module Your_Account) [Impact: 3/5]

Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.

File: /html/mainfile.php
90: if (!ini_get('register_globals')) { 
91:     @import_request_variables("GPC", "");

File: /html/modules/Your_Account/index.php
758: function logout() {
769: if (!empty($redirect)) {
770:    echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"refresh\" content=\"3;URL=modules.php?name=$redirect\">";

due to a call to the function 'import_request_variables' it is possible to create the variable $redirect with an 
arbitrary value and to inject arbitrary HTML code. Due to 
XSS filtering the request must be done via POST with the injection data sent as payload.

A HTTP POST test request is: 

POST /html/modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=logout HTTP/1.1
Host: www.example.com
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0
