More Details
We at MajorSecurity have discovered some vulnerabilities in CMS RedAks 2.0, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Input passed directly to the "search", "search_id" and "search_inall" POST parameters in "/search/" Controller is not properly sanitised before being stored and returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Web applications should never trust on user generated input and therefore sanatize all input.

Do not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged-in to the application.
