Displaying error messages (filename) is vulnerable to XSS, We just need to set the name of a PHP file to something like this: <img src=x

Test script:
<img src=x onerror=alert('XSS')>.php:


$file = $_GET['f'];
$f = fopen($file, 'r');


Expected result:
When you open this file in your browser you will get 2 XSS popups.
