== Description ==
- Product: Joomla! redSHOP component
- Product link: http://redcomponent.com/redcomponent/redshop
- Vendor: redcomponent
- Affected versions: version 1.2 is vulnerable. Other versions might
be affected as well.
- Vulnerability discovered by: Matias Fontanini

== Vulnerability ==
When using the "addtocompare" task, the component does not correctly

making it vulnerable to SQL Injection attacks.

The following proof of concept request retrieves the database user,
name and version:
