			$_SESSION['lang'] = $_GET["lang"];
		By:
		if ((preg_match( '/^[a-z]{2}$/', $_GET["lang"] ) || preg_match( '/^[a-z]{2}\-[a-z]{2}$/', $_GET["lang"] )) && is_file('../l10n/'.$_GET["lang"].'/lang.php')) {
			$_SESSION['lang'] = $_GET["lang"];


--- XSS ---
- http://localhost/posh/portal/login.php?message=XSS%20Catched%20!%22%29%29;alert%28%22XSS%22%29;//
	- Vulnerability at: templates/default/login.php line 42
		Replace: if ($message!='') echo '<font color="#ff0000"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(lg("'.$message.'"));</script></font><br /><br />';
		By: if ($message!='') echo '<font color="#ff0000"><script type="text/javascript">document.write(lg("'.htmlspecialchars($message).'"));</script></font><br /><br />';

- http://localhost/posh/admin/login.php?extid=ok%22%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert%28%27XSS%27%29;%3C/script%3E
	- Vulnerability at: templates/default/login_adminsimplified.php line 93
		Replace: <input type="hidden" name="extid" maxlength="16" value="<?php echo $extid; ?>" class="thinbox" />
		By: <input type="hidden" name="extid" maxlength="16" value="<?php if(is_int($extid)){ echo $extid; } ?>" class="thinbox" />
- http://localhost/posh/admin/index.php?extid=1%29;alert%28%27XSS%27
	- Vulnerability at: templates/default/index_adminsimplified.php line 67 and 70
		Replace: $p.admin.widgets.loadModExtId(<?php echo $extid; ?>);
		By: $p.admin.widgets.loadModExtId(<?php if(is_int($extid)){ echo $extid; } ?>);
		Replace: $p.admin.widgets.refreshIcons(icon,<?php echo $extid; ?>);
		By: $p.admin.widgets.refreshIcons(icon,<?php if(is_int($extid)){ echo $extid; } ?>);


--- Local File Inclusion ---
- http://localhost/posh/portal/scr_changelang.php => POST lang=../../../../../../etc/passwd%00
	POST http://localhost/posh/portal/scr_changelang.php HTTP/1.1
	lang=../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd%00
	
	- Call http://localhost/posh/portal/moduleff.php for example to see the result (a lot of page use __LANG to include lang file)
	- Vulnerability at portal/scr_changelang.php line 67
		Replace: $_SESSION['lang']=$lang;
		By: if ((preg_match( '/^[a-z]{2}$/', $_GET["lang"] ) || preg_match( '/^[a-z]{2}\-[a-z]{2}$/', $_GET["lang"] )) && is_file('../l10n/'.$_GET["lang"].'/lang.php')) {
			$_SESSION['lang']=$lang;
