AJAX Post Search wordpress plugin description
This plugin will allow your website visitors to search the posts of your site without page refresh.

SQL (blind) injection description
The problem was located in :cardoza_ajax_search.php file, to be more specific  the_search_function() . I could see that 
the srch_txt field hadn't been sanitized.

POC:

/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php/?srch_txt='or 1=1-- &action=the_search_text

via ajax

it is possible to access the database and as a consequence  get user information such as usernames, passwords among 
other data
