More Details
We at MajorSecurity have discovered some vulnerabilities in CMS RedAks v.2.0, which can be exploited to conduct sql injection attacks.
Input passed directly to the "search_area" POST parameter in "/search/" Controller is not properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query.
This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

Web applications should never trust on user generated input and therefore sanatize all input.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
