DESCRIPTION:
A vulnerability has been discovered in NetCat, which can be exploited
by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed via the "search_query" parameter to /search is not
properly sanitised before being used in a call to "eval()". This can
be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 4.5.2 Extra. Other versions
may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
