Legal position is that of you are already married at the time of second marriage the second marriage is void, in ur case your sister marriage is void but she can get a divorce now from the first husband and thn get this marriage registered, in any case rights of the son will not be hampered and he will hold all his rights

Yes it is illegal because Your sister lives with second husband without any status and also there is no any status of her son. Legally first of all your sister must file divorce proceedings and after obtaining decree from court then registered second marriage.
