 if ( !file_exists(ROOT.'/lang/'.basename($langfilenew).'.lang.php') ) {
            $langfilenew = $SETTINGS['langfile'];
        }
...

this check, when you update your profile and select a new language, can be
bypassed by supplying a well crafted value for langfilenew argument, ex:

../../../../../../../apache/logs/access.log[null char]/English

basename() returns 'English' and English.lang.php is an existing file in lang/
folder, now

../../../../../../../apache/logs/access.log[null char]

string is stored in xmb_members table so, every time you are logged in,
u can include an arbitrary file from
local resources because in header.php we have this line

require ROOT."lang/$langfile.lang.php";

and this works regardless of php.ini settings because of the ending null char
stored in database

this tool injects some code in Apache log files and tries to launch commands
