The issue exists in the file /admin/partials/menu/options.php and is caused by the lack of input validation on the section request parameter. The vulnerable code is listed below.

<?php if( !isset( $_REQUEST['section'] ) || $_REQUEST['section'] == '' ) {
include YIKES_MC_PATH . 'admin/partials/menu/options-sections/general-settings.php';
} else {
if( isset( $_REQUEST['addon'] ) && $_REQUEST['addon'] == 'true' ) {
include apply_filters( 'yikes-mailchimp-'.$_REQUEST['section'].'-options-path' , '' );
} else {
include YIKES_MC_PATH . 'admin/partials/menu/options-sections/' . $_REQUEST['section'] . '.php';
}
}
?>
