Technical Details & Description:  
A sql injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the NPDS CMS - NPDS-Revolution-13.  
The vulnerability allows an attacker to inject sql commands by usage of a vulnerable value to compromise the application dbms.  
The sql injection vulnerability is located in the `query` parameter of the vulnerable `search.php ` application file. Remote attackers   
are able to inject own sql commands by usage of vulnerable `search.php ` file. A successful attack requires to   
manipulate a POST method request with vulnerable parameter `query` value to inject own sql commands. The injection is a time based ( tested ) by sql injection   
that allows to compromise the web-application and connected dbms.
